What do teachers say about Great Idea Grants?
“We are very thankful to have had this opportunity and will continue to use and develop the lessons that were created as a part of the unit for this project... Overall, this project was very successful and allowed for learning across the curriculum to be irresistible to students…. This project supported more hands-on classroom activities and increased research and self-selected reading… We have noticed increased student participation and motivation when students are engaged in this project’s unit lessons.” – Amy Dellapenna, McKeesport Area School District, Where in the World?“
“The grant program turned out better than we could have imagined! This program promoted continuous improvement and enhanced systematic change in education by incorporating a non-traditional method of teaching." – Gina Hilligsberg, West Mifflin Area School District, Math Marvels
“The greatest impact of this grant was on the students. They were able to acquire new knowledge in a fun way. I also learned different ways of teaching content in reading and math.” – Marcia Hager, Bethlehem Center School District, Shake, Rattle and Learn
“The word I keep coming back to is excitement and that was an overwhelming effect of this program on all involved.
