Very Good Video Providing Overview Of Refugee Crisis

Quartz has just published this very good video providing an overview of the refugee crisis. The info and presentation is good and, just as important for English Language Learners, the narrator speaks at a slow clip.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About World Refugee Day.

Very Impressive NY Times Interactive: “Police Body Cameras: What Do You See?”


Police Body Cameras: What Do You See? is a new very impressive interactive at The New York Times.

Then, those judgments are compared to other what others said and their feelings about the police.

It’s extraordinarily useful to just about any class, and will be a superior addition to my Theory of Knowledge lesson on perception, Videos: Here’s The Simple Theory of Knowledge Lesson On Perception I Did Today. That post shares several other videos showing the same event from different angles.
