This week, the campaign to fix our nation's education problems continues with another sampling of essential teacher resources, this time from I Want to Teach Forever-approved vendor The Cotton Factory.
Remember: You can make a difference!
First, you can create some true number sense among your students with "Without You I'm Nothing," where a lonely zero tells his loved one, two and three (among others) what he really feels about them. Mr. D owns this very shirt, so you know you can count on it! If all else fails, you can always remind your students about the power of Pi.
The Cotton Factory makes it easy for Geography and US History teachers as well: they have a 50 states page which contains shirts honoring interesting towns in each state, and even groups them conveniently into 13 colonies or confederate states packs (among others). More importantly,can remind your students exactly who's #1 around your classroom!
For the English Language Arts Department, you can either celebrate grammar champs or, if an intervention is sorely needed, declare yourselves as grammar police. Either way, grammar wins!
Last time, I left out many wonderful departments and courses that make a difference in our students' lives. Luckily, there's a t-shirt out there ready to help you educate on just about any topic:
- Computer Science
- Media Studies
- Theoretical Physics
- Philosophy (including Existentialism)
- ...and finally: Importing, Exporting and Architecture
Viva la Cotton Factory! Viva la t-shirts!
