here, here, here, here, and here. This morning I found some more year in review videos and articles.
The Atlantic has published a set of fourteen 2011 year in review articles covering politics, science, entertainment, and business. After reviewing the year you can take a look ahead with their collection of 2012 prediction articles.
For those of us who really like tech gadgets, CNET has a year in technology review for us.
Watch MoJo has a year in review video that covers entertainment, sports, and some of the major news stories of the year. One disclaimer, some teachers might not like the clips from the entertainment section (Charlie Sheen dispenses some "wisdom" in one clip). Watch the video and decide for yourself if it's appropriate for your high school students.
If you're looking for some good collections of images of 2011, Larry Ferlazzo has assembled a good list of links here.
