Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that StoryCorps has put together a fantastic pilot program for social studies and English teachers that will take place over Thanksgiving weekend. Students use an app to interview family members, and with permission, those interviews are archived at the Library of Congress. If you're interested in participating, find out the details and download the free app and teacher toolkit here: http://bit.ly/1GWKzvV    Cheers! -Stacie

In the spirit of the traveling and socializing we do over the holidays, study physical (e.g. bridges) and immaterial (e.g. friendships) connectivity in Mathematics Illuminated, unit 11, "Connecting With Networks." Also study the dynamic nature of ecosystems, a particularly important group of networks connected to and influenced by us humans. http://bit.ly/1mjOzTi

On December 8, 1993, President Bill Clinton signed The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a trade pact eliminating virtually all tariffs and trade restrictions between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Watch Economics U$A, "International Trade," which illustrates the pros and cons of free trade. bit.ly/1yHrCM8

"The good news is that teaching negative history has very positive results when it’s done well. It’s only by thoroughly understanding why negatives happened that we reassert our national commitment to ending them and preventing them from happening in the first place." http://bit.ly/1MIM4oJ
