This coming week will begin the course for the 2012-2013 school year. While I am making final revisions to the activities of the coming weeks, I thought I would add a hint of some of the added ways to look at history. The following is a video from a history teacher from Hawaii who has made her way to the TED conference for her innovative use of media to compliment and enhance classroom instruction. Since the portion of the course concerning the emergence of man is less emphasized than others, this video will not make it into the classroom lectures of the coming weeks.
