Historian Joseph J. Ellis said, "The best and worst of American history are inextricably tangled together in Jefferson." Read about Thomas Jefferson in American Passages, unit 4, “Spirit of Nationalism,” to find out what Ellis meant. http://bit.ly/1qp08KI

“If you present poetry as if it were castor oil, no one will be interested. Instead, teachers can approach it as something fun, and also explore poetry that connects to the students and their lives (as opposed to choosing poetry that they feel “should” be studied).” – Nikki Grimes http://bit.ly/1V9u5LL

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison (b.3.1.1914) was published in 1952 and sparked an ongoing debate about the obligations and consequences of a "black identity." As you watch "Becoming Visible" in American Passages, consider how Ellison and his peers responded to the social and political tensions of the time. http://bit.ly/1ngssgg

"When a song or video goes viral, it’s good news for the artists who created it. When a viral infection causes a human epidemic, it’s the opposite." Our blog writer Jenny Weeks walks us through how diseases such as Ebola and Zika spread and how scientists study and fight them in The Science of Diseases: Going Viral in a Bad Way. http://bit.ly/1VQCMYn

Techniques of characterization and the importance of point of view become clear in a dramatization of Tillie Olsen's (b.1.14.1912) "I Stand Here Ironing." Watch Literary Visions, program 6, "Telling Their Tales: Character in Short Fiction." http://bit.ly/1d3Mq1n

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
