    ISIS is becoming a more and more important issue by the day and something that students should be informed about. I just read this incredibly detailed and illuminating article about ISIS in the Atlantic (below) but it's much too long for use in most classrooms. Does anyone have an effective but more concise resource on ISIS that students could benefit from?

    China is in the midst of one of the largest, most rapid, most significant transformations of any place in the history of the world. I just read two great books on this subject by Peter Hessler that I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject. River Town is about his experiences in the small town of Fuling as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1996. Nat Geo also published an article about his return to Fuling in 2013 and the incredible changes he encountered there. The other book, Oracle Bones, relates the story of several specific individuals living the transformation in real time, including some of his former students, and also provides some interesting insight into the history of language in China as well as the Cultural Revolution. Do you have any other great resources that would help students to develop a picture of China's transformation?

    • Bayan Frankel - Those books are outstanding, I agree. Have you seen the documentary "Up the Yangtze"? It is about the dramatic changes created by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam, and focuses on some teenagers who work on cruise ships on the Yangtze River. Here's the link on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1114277/ Looks like it's available on Amazon instant video for a few dollars.

    • Bay Carlson - Thanks Ms Frankel- great resource! I can't wait to watch. I also just began reading Age of Ambition by Evan Osnos, which one a Booker Prize this year and covers similar content. so far, so good!

    I'll be facilitating several GLOBE PD opportunities this spring/summer including a Train-the-Trainer in April. GLOBE is an international environmental monitoring project that provides standardized, classroom friendly protocols to monitor hydrology, soils, atmosphere, phenology, and land cover (excellent mapping tie-in).

    My students face test anxiety. Do you have any videos strategies etc. to combat this?
    • Bayan Naimey - Sometimes I just don't call it a test. They seem to link the word test to bad feelings, so I call them assessments, or something else, and then they don't have the same degree of anxiety.

    • Bay Hasty - Thanks.

    • Bay Carlson - Practice. Start with a couple of low-stakes tests so that they can get a feel for what will be expected of them before moving on to a major assessment.

    Are you interested in learning more about current issues in the Middle East? Would you like to spend a week this summer participating in one of the best professional development experiences you'll ever have in your life at Brown University in beautiful Providence, RI? Last year I participated in the Choices Geography Leadership Institute and I would HIGHLY encourage you to do the same. Not only will you learn more about how to use their splendid resources, some of the best I've ever come across, but you'll also be treated to incredible lectures from outstanding professors and other experts and meet some other amazing teachers too. Application deadline 3-16-2015. Let me know if you have any questions about it, see link below.

    Great activity from "STEM-ming The Global Drinking Water Crisis." It introduces students to the concept of "Thinking Outside The Box" in the search for solutions to the problem.
