Thanks for Teaching Us is a site that allows students to publicly thank their teachers. With Random Acts of Kindness Week just around the corner (Feb. 13-19), this might be a great activity to offer your students. Talk about the qualities they have liked in past teachers. Ask them to choose a teacher and to write a letter of gratitude. If they have permission to have their work and first name on the internet, allow them to type their thanks on this site. Once it is posted, the letter can be e-mailed to the teacher. Searches can be done on the site, as well, for teachers and schools that have already received thanks.
