muse: n. a source of inspiration

Just how do we SEE light? This YouTube video explains it all… in less than three minutes. This video  is created by YouTube user MinutePhysics who has posted over sixty such videos!

If you’re just dragging photos from the Internet you could be guilty of copyright infringement! If you or your students need to add photos to a project, check out this website with more than 250 FREE stock photography sites.

Created by a former Whitney Young High School teacher, noredink is a really interesting concept. Create a free teacher account, create a class, and create a quiz or assignment. Choose the grammar category you want (options currently are commonly confused words, apostrophes, subject/verb agreement, or commas, fragments and run-ons) and noredink will create the quiz or assignment for you. Students log in and take the quiz – and you don’t use any red ink! What’s really cool about noredink is that your students set up profiles and include the things that are important to them – hobbies, TV shows, friends, etc., – and the website creates assignments that relate to them. Once students have completed the assignments, you can log in and manage the class and see where weak areas are. It’s really new, so I’m sure we’ll see some more improvement (and probably a more aggressive pay model) in the future. This one has some real potential!

You might find this article in The Jerusalem Post about Jewish farming interesting. Apparently there’s an educational farm in Maryland that teaches educators how to make pickles with their students. Anyone up for canning?
