Each week, I publish a post containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.

A Nation on the Move: Exploring the Promise of the First Transcontinental Railroad is a new lesson from The New York Times Learning Network. It’s too advanced for English Language Learners.

One is a piece from PBS on its impacts, which I will use as a jigsaw, and the other is a Times’ column connecting the Transcontinental Railroad to today’s controversial bullet train being built in our state.
Here are two resources I’m adding to The Best Resources For Learning About Homework Issues:
That Grade School Was (Probably) Right to Dump Homework is from New York Magazine (thanks to Alexander Russo for the tip).
Homework vs. No Homework Is the Wrong Question is by Maurice Elias.
