Obama to address nation’s students Sept 8

Fuhrer Alert: Teachers can download materials to be used with the speech. What jumped out at me was the part in the pre-K – 6 document where our children are asked why is it important to listen to the President, and other elected officials. The lesson plans are linked below. It is my understanding that the time has been changed to noon Eastern time.

  1. Am advised that for Humble schools, it is teacher option as to the Sept 8 presentation will be shown, and, HISD will respect parent choice as to whether or not student views it. Good for Humble schools. Also, see Dan Huberty (HISD board) letter to SecEd Arne at: http://www.harriscountygop.com/documents/Letter_Secretary_of_Education.pdf
