The quality of resources is amazing, if not contradictory or confusing at times. With a record breaking or near record breaking turn out, I must discuss the relevance of this event. Unfortunately, in my year-long class we have already discussed elections. Additionally, I am BEHIND due to #Snowzilla. So, I have five to ten minutes to discuss the importance of this event. Here is how I did it; it's not pretty but it gets the job done. That slide show is made to be shared!
Additionally, I really love the following resources to help add interest to my discussion.
