We started with 80 Slides and now we are down to the final matchup. Who will be named the 2020 Quote Madness Champion? When this began, I had no idea that it would come down to these two pioneers from the 1960s and 1970s. Also, this goes to show that black and white slides can have a powerful impact. There is a great deal that I love about each of these slides, and very few minor things that I would change about them if I thought it would make a difference to anyone other than me. It is all in your hands now. Please choose your Quote Madness 2020 Champion.
When this all started, we had 80 slides, and now we are down to THE FINAL FOUR! In today's matchups, it is Shirley Chisholm VS Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy VS Socrates. It is quite an interesting cast of characters: THREE Civil Rights pioneers, TWO who were assassinated in 1968, and ONE who was executed for corrupting the minds of the youth of Athens.

Welcome to Spring! By this point, you and your kids are probably getting a little stir crazy thanks to COVID-19. I have been really impressed with the way that teachers have mobilized and shared such amazing online resources. In honor of today being the first day of Spring, I want to share one of my favorite apps that I have not seen mentioned on any resource list. Take a look at seek and let's Go Outside and seek Spring while still maintaining our social distance. Remember that even when sheltering in place that the outdoors are still open.
