Are You Ready to Change American Money?

On April 21, 2016, it was announced that there would be changes to some of our American money. I read about it first on Twitter, and Mr. Mault's Marketplace just came out with a close reading and writing project for his class. He is sharing his lesson as a freebie on Teachers Pay Teachers.

A huge thank you to Mr. Mault's Marketplace, who has done an excellent job of writing about this current decision for changing American Money. 

When I first heard that the money was getting this "face-lift," I was a bit skeptical. After reading the article, I can see why these changes are taking place. 

I love current events, but don't have the time to create anything right now, so I am delighted that it has been done for me. I look forward to sharing the article with my students.

Don't You Just Love Giveaways?

I'm still working on my thesis, so I haven't been writing much. I just had to stop for a minute to pass on this great giveaway opportunity from several teachers. Take a look by clicking on the picture.
