Two Browser-based Noise Meters That Show Students How Loudly They Speak Earlier this week on iPadApps4School.com I featured an app called Too Noisy that shows students how loudly they are speaking. The app measures the volume of the noise in a room and displays a meter indicating whether or not the the room is too noisy. If you don't have an iPad, you can find the same basic features in the following browser-based tools.

Written in 1939, Auden focuses on the German Jews arriving in the UK at that time, though the poem has taken in a timeless quality due to the commonality of its subject. Indeed, it is not until stanza 8 that Auden identifies his Refugees. Possibly he is trying to show the reluctance of the persecuted to identify themselves for fear of further persecution, possibly he is allowing the narrator –we assume a husband – to present the key ideas of his poem without the idea of Jewishness in some way getting in the way of a universal message.
