Creating videos for our library YouTube channel - Ian Clark - Medium A couple of years ago, I spent a great deal of time focused on developing our library’s YouTube channel. Previous to working on it, there were a few videos here and there, but we weren’t really using it as an effective tool to provide useful stuff for our students.

I’ve been experimenting more with creating videos over the course of the past year. This summer I even created a vlog of a trip to Scotland, teaching myself how to use iMovie on my laptop (which I discovered was actually way more sophisticated than the iOS version — I mean, it makes sense that it would be, but for some reason that thought never entered my head).

Introduction to the CRLS Research Guide- CRLS Research Guide CRLS Research Guide Cambridge Rindge And Latin Research Guide Introduction to our Research Guide Now over 11 million pageviews in the first 11 years The Book Bug: Share and Share Alike In the past couple of days I have gotten a few, very sweet emails from other teachers and Media Specialists about the ideas and programs I have shared here on The Book Bug. Although I do come up with a great deal of my own programs and ideas for the Media Center, I must admit that a few of the programs I am using in the Media Center are not 100% my original ideas.

An idea which I have borrowed (or maybe maintained is the correct word for it) for the Media Center is Honor Books. Mrs.

How Misinformation Spreads In the mid-1800s a caterpillar the size of a human finger began spreading across the northeastern U.S. This appearance of the tomato hornworm was followed by terrifying reports of fatal poisonings and aggressive behavior toward people. In July 1869 newspapers across the region posted warnings about the insect, reporting that a girl in Red Creek, N.Y., had been “thrown into spasms, which ended in death” after a run-in with the creature. That fall the Syracuse Standard printed an account from one Dr. Fuller, who had collected a particularly enormous specimen. The physician warned that the caterpillar was “as poisonous as a rattlesnake” and said he knew of three deaths linked to its venom.
