In addition, understanding science and the extraordinary insights it has produced can be meaningful and relevant on a personal level, opening new worlds to explore and offering lifelong opportunities for enriching people's lives.

You Matter: Before You Help Students, You Must Help Yourself Stress caused me to lose half my hair and gain weight. Stress put Angela in the hospital three times in a year. As much as we love caring for children, we’ve learned very hard lessons that mattering starts with loving yourself enough to take care of yourself. From going offline to exercise to just taking a deep breath, it is time to get real about how you’re treating yourself.

STEM Behind Hollywood by Texas Instruments Scientists and experts who consult on Hollywood films and TV worked alongside leading math and science educators to create free classroom activities for TI-Nspire CX™ handhelds, TI-Nspire™ Teacher and Student Software, and TI-Nspire™ Apps for iPad. These activities center around the math and science behind Hollywood themes like zombies, superheroes, space and forensics, and they give students the chance to solve problems just like real-life scientists using the concepts behind their favorite movies and TV shows.

(See STEM Student Research Handbook.) Ironically enough however, if I had read this article while I was still a full-time classroom teacher, I would have defended myself saying that I worked tirelessly to help students enjoy science. And I would have been right. But that was the problem.

Canadian History Through Living Books – The Canadian Homeschooler A great big thank you is due to a lady named Nicola who, in 2006, put together a long list of books of Canadian history. It obviously took a lot of time and effort to compile the list, but as with all things – it’s time for an update. Jyl, who had generously posted the list online for everyone, gave me permission to use and expand on Nicola’s original list. Below is a revamped, updated, and continuing list of living books for Canadian history.
