Many of you may be familiar with TED Talks and have enjoyed the topics presented. TED also has an educational component called TED-Ed. The TED-Ed lessons focus on all subject areas and contain videos, quizzes, enrichment resources, and discussion questions.  Teachers may also customize lessons to meet their own classes' needs. To use TED-Ed lessons, teachers need to create a free account. Once registered, they will receive weekly emails containing links to that week's lessons. As a former English teacher, one of this week's lessons caught my attention: "Why should you read Shakespeare's The Tempest?"  To get a taste for what a TED-Ed lesson is like, watch this video and visit the accompanying lesson.  To be able to view all the materials, be sure to register for an account.
