The #LastBell movement on Twitter and in the blogosphere is designed to encourage teachers to treat May like it’s September–or to help them employ teaching strategies that inspire learning until the end of the school year. Until the last bell.

Co-moderator of #LastBell Jennifer Hogan facilitated an insightful chat recently for Hack Learning, in which she and some brilliant educators hacked the end of the school year. Here, we feature some of the amazing strategies teachers shared for teaching to the last bell and continuing learning even in May.
