Happy Thursday Everyone!

We have a spectacular collection of resources to help you #mcpop this week. From new science podcasts to info on making a digital syllabus that your students can annotate to an excellent 9.11 lit collection of there is a little something for everyone.

Since the reboot, I've been embedding tweets in the discussion forums. I notice some folks still posting below that on a comment wall. If you are in a group PLEASE feel free to post up in the discussion forum. Everyone can share and be highlighted there - especally if you're doing cool work that you want our (almost) 10,000 MC POPPERS to hear about!
