Over the past year and a half, NEA-Alaska has been working closely with the Alaska Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEED) to develop a clearinghouse of Alaska-specific education modules called the Alaska Commons.
Once approved for addition to the AK Learns Reviewed and Highlighted Courses in the Alaska Commons, educators will know that the content they're using, adapting, or modifying is of the highest quality and completeness. Here's where you come in. The Alaska Commons and the AK Learns Reviewed and Highlighted Courses will only work if teachers from across Alaska, at every grade level and discipline, submit their modules for review.
To incentivize NEA-Alaska member participation, Members who successfully complete a module which gets added to the AK Learns Reviewed and Highlighted Courses will be entered to win two $2,500 prizes and ten $1,000 prizes.
