Get a Free DVD Copy of 12 Years A Slave

Thanks to an email from Julie Greller I learned that teachers can receive a free DVD of 12 Years A Slave. The DVD, distributed by Fox Connect, comes with a study guide and a copy of the book. You can register here to receive your copy of 12 Years A Slave.

Please note, the registration form does ask for your principal's approval and Fox Connect will not ship to residential addresses.

Three Free Stossel in the Classroom DVDs

Stossel in the Classroom is currently giving away three free DVDs to educators. The DVDs contain multiple segments of John Stossel's television work that can be applied to classroom lessons. Each DVD is accompanied by downloadable materials for teachers to use in their classrooms. The 2012 DVD appears to be focused on topics in economics while the 2010 and 2011 DVDs appear to cover a broader range of topics. That said, all of the DVDs address topics that are relevant to middle school and high school social studies classrooms.

I know that John Stossel can be a polarizing figure and that many teachers disagree with some of his work. That said, I personally know a couple of social studies teachers who do like his work and would enjoy getting these DVDs for free
