It's 12pm on the east coast. This is the time that many radio stations play Arlo Guthrie's classic song, Alice's Restaurant. The story of the song can be found here and here. Happy listening!

Vietnam 35 Years Later in Pictures

Last Friday was the 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam war. has assembled a 47 image photo essay about the Vietnam War and it's impact on both the Vietnamese and Americans. Because of the graphic nature of some of the images, I strongly recommend selecting images to share with students rather than directing them to the entire essay.

Applications for Education
For history teachers,'s photo essay about the Vietnam War could provide some good conversation starters and research project starters.

Larry Ferlazzo has assembled a list of resources about the 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon that you may want to explore.

Travel Up the Mekong Delta to Angkor

Today, on Snag Films I watched Churning the Sea of Time. Churning the Sea of Time is an hour-long documentary chronicling director Les Guthman's journey up the Mekong Delta through Vietnam and into Cambodia. The history and culture of the region is explained as Guthman advances up the Mekong toward Angkor.

The film is embedded below.

Applications for Education
If you teach any lessons about Vietnam and or Cambodia, this film could be an excellent supplement to those lessons. If you do choose to show this film to your students you may also want to explore National Geographic's interactive animations of Angkor.
