October 11, 2018 WIR: Comic Gerrymandering, Edgar Allan Poe Animation, The Power of Play, Teen Brains & More #educhat fun!

Happy Thursday Educational Wizards!

This week, I'm feeling the Shakespeare & Math groups. In the former, you'll find lots of modern hot takes on the Bard. In the latter group you'll find lots of big questions re: the power of numbers to shape society - including a great comic explainer on gerrymandering from my fav. math PhD/ Comic artist Olivia Walch - follow her at @oliviawalch:
