In History
  • Child study movement

    Child study movement
    G. Stanley Hall was the first person to take into account the student's feelings and attitudes towards learning as a part of the learning process. The Child study movement is the start of a shift away from traditional, 'mental discipline' style learning and putting pedagogy into practice.
  • The Cardinal Principles

    The Cardinal Principles
    The Cardinal Principles steered away from the standard liberal arts approach and weighed equally different kinds of education for the very first time. Instead of focusing on the most difficult subjects, this allowed students to tailor their education to better fit their needs and interests.
  • Brown v. Board of Education

    Brown v. Board of Education
    This was a pivotal moment in civil rights history because it opened up the opportunity for African American students to access a quality education, making education the great equalizer it was set out to be.
  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act

    Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
    The IDEA act, through all its reforms, was the fist in the air, breakfast club moment of justice for students with special needs. By 1976, all states had subsidized public school programs for students with disabilities and/or special needs. Not only were they given the chance to study in public schools, but their needs were being met so they could receive an appropriate and fair education. Without the IDEA act, SPED, ELL, or pull-outs for additional support would not be possible.
  • Common Core Standards Released

    Common Core Standards Released
    Common Core Standards are used by every educator today, and every teacher needs to know them up and down for the grade level they teach. Despite the controversy, CCSS guide curriculums on a national level across 41 states and create a framework for teachers to build lessons off and share resources based on similar standards.
