Educational Resource Development Ad Hoc Committee
Have you ever visited the website: www.TeachersPayTeachers.com ? Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) is a website that offers free or cheap classroom resources for K-12 teachers such as: power points, anchor charts, lesson plans, and center activities. Teachers can find resources for any grade and any subject (e.g. math, science, and social studies) but the English Language Arts category is the largest with double the resources.
KSRA is exploring this concept for our Educational Resource Committee for several reasons. First, one of our main goals for KSRA is to offer effective and relevant professional development. TpT can provide a platform for KSRA to support teachers as they look for resources to improve their instruction. Second, KSRA has 1,600 members that could provide innovative ideas for teaching reading, writing, speaking, and listening. If everyone would donate a successful lesson plan, we could populate the account quickly. Third, TpT can serve as an alternative, income method for providing KSRA services, such as funding international advocacy campaigns, funding for undergraduate and graduate student scholarships, funding annual conferences, and helping to keep membership costs low.
TpT offers KSRA a direct link to support classroom teachers and reading specialists as they plan, teach, and assess students’ literacy! However, we need your ideas and resources. If you have created a successful lesson plan, power point, or worksheet that supports authentic reading, writing, listening, and speaking, we need to hear from you. At the same time, if you are a student, substitute teacher, or retired teacher who would be willing to work with other classroom teachers to create materials, we need to hear from you. Please do not pass up this opportunity to support teachers and reading specialists. Contact Andy Morrison, email@example.com with suggestions and materials.

It's that time of year again. That time when teachers and students look back and think, "Where did the summer go?" This summer NPRA Board Members have been hard at work brainstorming new ideas of how we can make NPRA more relevant to members. How can we make this organization work for YOU? We think a few changes will work well and help to reach out to all of our great members (and great potential members!)
One of our new ways to spread the good news is our FACEBOOK PAGE!!! Just search and LIKE "Northeastern Pennsylvania Reading Association" to keep up-to-date with all of the things we have to offer.
So let's get things started with a bang. Join us for our FALL SOCIAL and MEMBERSHIP DRIVE at the Backyard Alehouse (523 Linden Street) on September 10th from 4:30-7pm. If you bring a new member, get $10 off your membership. 2 new members, get $20 off. 3 new members....well that means that your membership for the year is FREE! (Doesn't get much better than that!) We hope to see you there! :)
As we wind down the 2012-2013 School Year, NPRA would like to thank all of its members, Board Members, featured authors and speakers, and professional development participants who supported us this year. Look for the new 2013-2014 Professional Development Calendar early in September. See you then!
