Here are our favorite staff picks from the past month. Take a deep dive into some of the most prolific authors on your syllabus, bring primary sources to life through classroom activities, and spark some debate about the faces of AI with these latest resources.

This month’s picks examine literary and geological giants from all angles. Explore all the articles and poetry we have to offer and have students build their essay writing skills with an interactive video. 

Explore history and society this month with articles about past and present trailblazers, primary sources, and explainer videos. You can even sprinkle a little parmesan–I mean fun– throughout your regular programming with a geography lesson on pizza. 

The David Beckham documentary might be stealing your attention this month, but you can keep your students’ attention by bringing some sports action into the lab. Read about the science behind soccer, or the mysteries of the sea, and more!
