S.M.A.R.T Steps Week


Dean Graziano, VP of Education for izzit.org®, has authored a proclamation to celebrate and underscore the importance of back-to-school and secured New Hampshire’s Gov. Chris Sununu’s signature on a proclamation declaring September 7-11, 2020 S.M.A.R.T. Steps Week.


S.M.A.R.T. steps mean S-Start with discussion, M-Make informed decisions, A-Access reliable materials and content, R-Respect and be responsible towards varying viewpoints, and T-Thoughtful and tenable responses - building leadership. This proclamation underscores student and educator engagement, being actively engaged and rigorously involved in learning - specifically, development of critical-thinkers and being respectful of others, as well as self-reliant and responsible citizens. Our students should be leaders and educational role models for our younger students. Success in a post-secondary path requires hard work, a strong work ethic, responsibility, and problem-solving abilities. 

 
Because of an ever-changing world due to Covid-19, schools and businesses have had to reinvent learning and preparing students/employees respectively for a new learning/work environment. Simply put, schools and more to-the-point, educators, need effective and proven educational resources NOW! For over fourteen years, izzit.org offers no-cost, high-quality educational materials to educators: teachers, homeschoolers, parents, grandparents, scout troop leaders – to anyone interested in learning/teaching! We are here for you! Explore why critical thinking starts at izzit.org! 


New Hampshire citizens are encouraged to participate in the activities commemorating S.M.A.R.T. Steps Week, September 7-11, 2020. For additional information please contact Dean Graziano at [email protected].
