Lauren posted a My Space template page to follow up on the Civil War facebook discussion. If anyone is interested in using it it is a great resource - find it here.

Super blogger Frank Baker (and the OZ behind the Media Literacy Clearinghouse) made a post re: "21st Century Skills" and Geography on the Ning.

And remember, if you dig the resources you're finding here please do invite fellow social studies teachers who love to teach with pop culture to join this group. Just click on the

button above to invite more pop minded educators to our community.

Enjoy! Ry:)

If you're not a member of the "Teaching With Moving Images" group, consider joing so you can catch great resources like this article - 'Do The Right Thing' Still Asks Burning Questions. Check it out.

Hey Everyone,

As you all know, I've been learning by doing out here on the Ning. To those ends I've been telling the bigger groups that this comment area works best for short thoughts. If you're hunting for or sharing a resource it is always best to put that above in the discussion forum. That allows your topic to be easily archived and searchable when new members join or check out the group. Lots of things get lost in the comment wall... if you don't beleive me check out the the Graphic Novel Group's comment wall.

From there, if you want an e-mail update about a topic or resource being discussed in the forum above because you teach that topic or have a special interest in it you have to remember to click the "follow" button at the bottom of the post.

Also, if you know that someone else might like the resource or discussion topic always feel free to click on "share" and the url will be shared with your co-teaching friend.

I say all this because I made an update to yesterday's No Girls Allowed post with an NPR story about another Union soldier who was a woman in disguise. You won't know about these additional resources or discussions unless you have clicked the "follow" button.

So if you really like a topic - "follow" :)

Hope everyone is groovy!
