Connect teens to different technologies available through your library. Teens can literally press play on digital devices such as mp3 players, DVD players or web media. Press Play @ the library can also be interpreted more broadly by emphasizing the word "play."

American teen
The documentary hit of Sundance 2008, American Teen offers up irresistible archetypes of everybody's high school years: the jock, the nerd, the prom queen. You can't blame filmmaker Nanette Burstein (The Kid Stays in the Picture) for focusing on these easily-relatable figures--they pop off the screen. She spent the school year with the senior class at Warsaw High in Warsaw, Indiana, a close-quarters town where, it seems, the lives of the adults are not so different from the lives of the teens. You'll hiss pampered princess Megan, whose behavior verges on the sadistic; you'll roll your eyes at geeky Jake, whose way with the girls does not measure up to his fantasy world of knights and fair ladies; you'll feel for Colin, whose shot at going to college is quite literally his jump shot. Most of all you'll be drawn in by Hannah, the typical creative-misfit type, whose gamine charm is subject to alarming depressions. The movie succeeds at its goal, which is to make all this familiar material come to life (even if an average year of The Real World accomplishes similar things). Purists might have more qualms about the extent to which the kids' actions occasionally feel motivated by the camera's presence, and how the film crew decided to let some of the more serious decisions unfold. Such unease probably won't deflect the general good time, nor the sense--for anyone over 18--of "thank god that's over." --Robert Horton.PG-13: For some strong language, sexual materials, some drinking and brief smoking - all involving teens.

For any school or district considering or already using formative assessment, here is the ultimate tool to support teachers and help them visualize how they can succeed.

Experts and practitioners on the DVDs explain the main functions of formative assessment and the basic process teachers use to implement formative assessment in the classroom. Throughout all three DVDs, scenes from elementary and secondary classrooms show formative assessment strategies that teachers use to diagnose and address student learning problems. All three DVDs with the activities from the User Guide help you move your school closer to integrating the teaching-learning-assessment process to improve student achievement in all grades and subjects.

Two million minutes
Regardless of nationality, as soon as a student completes the 8th grade, the clock starts ticking. From that very moment the child has approximately -Two Million Minutes until high school graduation. Two Million Minutes to build their intellectual foundation. Two Million Minutes to prepare for college and ultimately career. Two Million Minutes to go from a teenager to an adult. How a student spends their Two Million Minutes - in class, at home studying, playing sports, working, sleeping, socializing or just goofing off -- will affect their economic prospects for the rest of their lives. How do most American high school students spend this time? What about students in the rest of the world? How do family, friends and society influence a student's choices for time allocation? What implications do their choices have on their future and on a country's economic future? This film takes a deeper look at how the three superpowers of the 21st Century - China, India and the United States - are preparing their students for the future. As we follow two students - a boy and a girl - from each of these countries, we compose a global snapshot of education, from the viewpoint of kids preparing for their future. Grades: Adult.

From lullabies to literature: stories in the lives of infants and toddlers
The ability to use language is not something that children automatically develop. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development. Sprinkled with vignettes and ideas for stories to share, From Lullabies to Literature explains how the many types of stories and story experiences are best used with very young children, with a particular focus on using books, and how teachers can plan and provide story experiences most effectively.

The teaching gap: best ideas from the world's teachers for improving education in the classroom
Offering a detailed comparison of the educational methods of Germany, Japan and the U.S., the authors dissect the information gleaned from a pioneering effort to videotape instruction in a representative sample of 231 eighth-grade math classrooms in the three countries, as a part of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Stigler, a professor of psychology at UCLA, and Hiebert, a professor of education at the University of Delaware, found that, overall, the international samples emphasize weaknesses in the American educational process that may not be overcome by reducing class size or adding school choice and vouchers, more technology or charter schools. Only seven countries out of the 41 nations surveyed in the TIMSS study scored lower than the U.S.: Cyprus, Portugal, South Africa, Kuwait, Iran and Colombia. Using simple graphs and sample data, they reveal that Japanese teachers stress understanding and thinking while German and American teachers emphasize skills. Despite a wealth of complex information, the book never lapses into academic jargon or trite conclusions. Especially illuminating are the recommendations in its final chapters, which call for overhauling the teaching profession with higher status, greater pay, stricter certification requirements, more accountability, better peer review and more demanding academic standards.

Interior lighting

Lighting has something like the power of life and death over interior design. Well planned lighting can bring a room to life, and thoughtless lighting can kill even the most creative interiors.

Pompeii and the Roman villa: Art and culture around the bay of Naples

The artists who flocked to the region to adorn the villas also created paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts for the residents of Pompeii and nearby towns.
