Two great groups you might be interested if you serve an urban population or have lots of kids who enjoy Street Lit: - A great Street Lit wiki - A LinkedIn group for those interested in Street Lit

Hey Shirley - thanks for all these great resources - again - as the MC POP traffic cop you might consider cutting and pasting all these resources above in the discussion forum so 1. I can highlight your resources on the Week in Review (as they will then have a URL and 2. They will not get buried below (that happens to comment wall stuff) and can have a permanent home here!

Shirley - thanks for the reminder. Also if people want more info check this old forum post - RESOURCES/FILMS: Teaching Tolerance

Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance has online resources and activities dealing with all of these issues.

One of the resources is an online magazine. The Spring 2010 issue covers these topics: 'The New Segregation': Gender, Sexual Orientation and Immigration ·....

They will also send you free teaching kits (DVD's and more). I've used several that greatly engage students. They're launching one soon about gay bullying.

I'm not doing a discussion post on this short as you can't really use it in classrooms - BUT it is a horrific issue and a pretty tough film - narrated by Emma Thompson about sex trafficing..

Hey Everyone,

Just posted the Human Rights Watch/First Look Films DVD collection info in the Moving Image group - they all have themes around race, gender, sexuality, nationality, history and politics - I would guess they're teachable in many contexts. Worth a look.

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!
