1. I thought you might be interested in spreading the word on
http://www.webenglishteacher.com/ It's a great site for English teachers.
2. I actually found the following website on webenglishteacher.com
The Memory Project essentially connects high school students in the U.S. with
children from an impoverished country (currently Uganda). What this
organization does is send a photograph of one of these children to the U.S.
students who then create an artistic representation of the child which is
returned to the child. The artwork is to serve as a happy memory for these
children who are forced to live the most tragic of lives.
If you look at the website, you will see that the artwork is of a very high
quality and must be because of its significance to the children. I was hoping
that you might pass this website on to other schools and educators to see if
they are interested. I know that we have a few art students who would be
willing to participate, but I thought it would be much more effective if we
could increase the number of pictures sent by inviting art students from
across the IU to contribute. (Maybe we could even display them at the IU for
I currently serve as the Peer Helpers advisor at West Perry High School. The
students in this group agreed to pay for the shipping of these works of art
which can be expensive.
Could you please get the word out to other districts and have them funnel it
to their art teachers or other appropriate personnel? Anyone who is
interested could contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling 717-789-3931. Please check out the site. I would really like
to see this take off!

Sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society, this site covers the history, bios and info on justices and more. It also has two feature stories, narrated and animated in parts using Macromedia Flash 6, illustrating key Supreme Court cases and issues, including the FDR court-packing controversy.
Very topical, considering recent developments in the Court.

Got paper plates? This site will tell you LOTS of things to do with them. You can choose from making an addition/multiplication aid, to an altitude measurer, to a constellation projector and many more. Looks like too much fun to me.
