EDGAR Exemplars and Resources

The U.S. Education Department finalized changes to the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) on December 19, 2014. The new EDGAR has incorporated the Uniform Grants Guidance and has replaced the old administrative, cost, and audit rules. These regulatory changes have a direct impact on all federal programs. Program administrators now need to have "written" policies and procedures on cash management, allowability, conflicts, procurement, equipment management, travel and indirect costs.

Think Pair Share

Think-pair-share is a widely-used strategy that can be successfully implemented in classrooms across all grade levels. This learning strategy promotes structured student interaction and is a great way for teachers to support the features of the Interaction component of the SIOP Model. It can also be an effective way to differentiate instruction by providing students time and structure for thinking about a given topic, enabling them to formulate individual ideas and share these ideas with a peer, and ultimately the entire class/group (Simon, 2014).
