Royalty-Free Images. Digital Books. True Crime Playlist. ELL Resources. MLA 8 Templates. Introduction The 8th edition of the MLA Handbook published in the summer of 2016 took a brilliant conceptual leap by advancing a set of citation principles that flexibly handle any new media or format.

MLA 8 Templates

A generic template can be used with any source, and special formatting based on source type (e.g., use “p.” for one type of source, but leave it out for another) has been eliminated. However, this new simplicity comes with new challenges. Application of MLA’s template takes practice and some creativity. And identifying what to include in each field in the template requires an understanding of the source and its unique qualities.

TED-Ed Book Recommendations – TED-Ed Shop. Hi, we’re the TED-Ed team -- the scrappy group of eight educators and animators who produce over 140 free, high-quality, educational animations for you every year.

TED-Ed Book Recommendations – TED-Ed Shop

We’d really like to start recommending free books to you, too. Here's why... We spend months researching the topic of every TED-Ed episode, and in the process we almost always discover books that explore the video's subject matter to a level of depth that only books can achieve. It’s a joyful experience — digging deep into a topic and understanding the world a little better as a result. We want you to discover those books and have that experience, too. That’s why we’re excited to announce that with support from Audible, we’ll now begin independently recommending books at the end of TED-Ed episodes on a rolling basis. You can find the books we’ll recommend at your local library, and you can also start a free trial on Audible using this link — -- and download one audio book for free.

Library of Congress Teaching Blogs

In the early twentieth century, women painted luminous and lethal radium on clock faces for military use, companies marketed radium-laced products to consumers, and doctors celebrated radium as a medical wonder. Today, primary sources about radium can prompt students to ask questions that can drive inquiry in science and social studies classes. Launch a lesson about asking discipline-specific questions by using the Library’s Primary Source Analysis Tool to support students in observing, reflecting on, and asking questions about a Radior advertisement from 1918.

The ad promoted beauty and health benefits of personal care products that contained radium. Examining it, my high school chemistry students wondered: Library of Congress Teacher Resources.
