Must Watch Documentaries About The U.S. Real Scientific Evidence of Controlled Implosion "The preconceived notion of NIST is that there's no evidence for explosives, as in there is no point in looking. That is the most unscientific thing which you can possibly think of. Not to look because you don't expect to find evidence and in fact the evidence is overwhelming. They state these conclusions for which there is no evidence and then they ignore conclusions that can be drawn from the evidence." -Lynn Margulis, PH.D, Scientist/Professor, University of Massachusetts eClips™ NASA eClips™ are short, relevant educational video segments.

Stick2 αq Hi. This was made by @antimatter15, in other words, me.

Authentic video in the classroom: Ireland II My second example of utilising authentic video in the EFL classroom is based on the same 50-minute travel video as my first. Of course, one can apply this to any video, but this time I will stick with Ireland. How I do it now will, however, differ from my last post because now I’ll concentrate on the language and vocabulary awareness in detail (but I wouldn’t use both methods on the same video in the same class, though).

Listening, reading, writing, speaking and even getting emotionally involved are at the centre of language learning.
