Greetings, teacher friend!
We get that you’re busy and that everything you do has the potential to change lives. So we hope that using Articulate in your class will be the easiest thing you do today.
The Articulate Educational Guide offers a diverse roster of exceptional guests you probably wouldn’t otherwise encounter. They discuss a range of topics—artistic and humanistic—that reveal how creative people think.
Here’s how it works:
- Search for a topic by keyword.
- Choose a relevant segment.
- Read or ad lib from our introduction.
- Play the segment.
- Start a conversation based on your own observations, or some of our own handy suggestions.
And that's it!
If all has gone according to plan, you will have a reinvigorated class full of students bubbling over with new understandings, and enthusiasm for the great creative mind they’ve just encountered.
Please tell us how it all worked out by joining the conversation with your fellow educators in the comments on each page. Or, send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
