A SOLAR ECLIPSE IS COMING!!!  Someone asked me this week what OEP is doing to celebrate the solar eclipse. Truth be told, it has been a busy summer and we haven’t talked much about it. We’ve worked with almost 1,000 of you this summer at professional development workshops…and it’s been great seeing you!

Here are a few fast facts and resources to make the eclipse a learning opportunity.
