Community: May 2009 Archives
This week, May 3-9, 2009 is Teacher Appreciation Week. Help students find a way to show their gratitude for educators by reading books and watching movies about great teachers.
We've gathered up books to help younger children connect with being thankful for their teachers. Plus we picked out a few of our favorite inspirational teacher movies, such as To Sir, With Love, Stand and Deliver and Dead Poets Society for junior high and high school students.

Here's an updated list of swine flu reading for 2009, if you're looking for additional reading on the topic.
And some good swine flu fiction.
