Financial Aid for Teachers, Students

By Alan Haskvitz

http://www.reacheverychild.com/alan.html

There are a variety of sites that offer information about scholarships, grants, and other financial data to help pay for educational related expenses. Because of the numerous sites and the fluctuating requirements it is best to start with the larger ones first before going to the more specific ones. I have tried to list the two major categories here. Regardless, this is one of the largest collections on the Internet, if not the largest, thanks to the Horace Mann Companies.

Horace Mann Unit of Study:

The History of Public Education

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Haskvitz

Lesson posted here

http://www.reacheverychild.com/feature/horace.html

This is an encompassing and multilevel unit of study that not only deals with the life of Horace Mann and his contributions to public education by links it with the major early acts that influenced education such as the Morrill Act and the Northwest Ordinance. Includes maps of Native American lands, a table about the rewards of staying in school, and scholarships given by the Horace Mann Companies. For lower level students there is even a word wall.

Easily one of the best units of study on Horace Mann anywhere.

Ideas for Improving Test Taking For All Types of Tests. For Teachers and Students.

I have posted a number of valuable links here that include preparation for various tests and even information on avoiding test stress. All free. No ads

Please note that Haskvitz’s state test scores went from the 22nd percentile to the 94th percentile using these methods. At present, out of 170 students, only 3 placed far below grade level on the state mandated tests and 91 percent finished in the top two categories.
