Set Your Tivo: New Season of NOVA

Hello Educators,

Next week NOVA presents the repeat broadcast of "Einstein's Big Idea," a two-hour special that explores the stories behind the world's most famous equation, E = mc2. (Subjects covered: physics, energy, properties of matter)

We'd like your help in spreading the word about the NOVA Teachers e-mail bulletin. If you refer three teachers to sign up for the bulletin, we'll enter you in a drawing to win five free NOVA videos. Simply refer three teachers to sign up at:

Just make sure your friends enter your name and e-mail address so we can track your referrals. (That would be Lessa Scherrer and ;-)

In the coming weeks:

Sept. 26 -- Mystery of the Megavolcano

Oct. 3 -- NOVA scienceNOW

Oct. 10 -- The Viking Deception

Hmmmm. And who says TV is not educational, induces zombie-like states, and dubs it the 'idiot' box. Hmmmmm.

I'd rather watch a cool TV show than listen to an uninspired teacher drone on...

Plus I can always switch the channel! LOL

The boys have really been enjoying and asking for Assignment Discovery videos. Apparently we will watch one everyday, so they say.

Tomorrow we're taking time out to watch Treasure Island in our matching pirate bandanas. Wolfie won a cutlass and an eye patch at the Renaissance Festival last weekend and I've got my pirate t-shirt and my hat that says "Wench", so we're good to go. ´S:D <--wearing pirate hat with feather?
