Resource Center


Welcome to The Dream Flag Project® Resource Center! This project is by teachers and for teachers, so this is where you’ll find the accumulated ideas and experience of hundreds of teachers who have done The Dream Flag Project® with their students. We welcome your ideas, so please email them to us – lesson plans, resources, web sites, whatever you find of value. Chances are someone else will appreciate it too. That’s how this works.
