Crowd-funding relies on many people making small donations to fund materials or projects needed by teachers, and educators are finding that donors are very generous. These donations are typically made on websites, with a few such as ClassWish.org and AdoptAClassroom.org being entirely dedicated to education-related funding. One teacher was able to raise $173 for two weighted vests for her students with autism who have sensory challenges.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of ‘Close Reading’
Of course, reading is a critical skill for all students to develop, but it is not enough for them just to read; they must be able to “close read.” This means that they need to be able to closely read a text in a way so that they deeply comprehend it, undercover hidden meanings, and analyze it. This may also be referred to as critical reading. Close reading is essential for student success in college and their careers. It is also a key skill for reading more complex texts, which the Common Core Standards call for. When students are first starting to read closely, teachers can have them answer specific questions about what they are reading to make them aware that they are close reading.
