Bangkok Globe | Teacher Mails Letters He Had Students Write To Themselves 20 Years Ago

Bangkok Globe | Teacher Mails Letters He Had Students Write To Themselves 20 Years Ago | Ajarn Donald's Educational News | Scoop.it
Ajarn Donald's insight:

We’ve all had “that teacher” who has influenced our lives, and for many students, “that teacher” is Bruce Farrer. Many years ago, Bruce told his ninth graders to write a ten-page letter to their future selves. Twenty years later, this incredible teacher tracked all of his students down and delivered the letters right back to the hands that wrote them. Their reactions show just how much this amazing act meant to them.

PearlHarbor.pdf?et_cid=68382681&et_rid=928419626&linkid=http%3a%2f%2fwww.history.com%2fimages%2fmedia%2fpdf%2fPearlHarbor.pdf

Ajarn Donald's insight:

Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After
Sunday, December 7 at 10am/9c


December 7 will forever be remembered as the day Pearl Harbor was attacked, yet little has been revealed about President Franklin D. Roosevelt's first responses to the news of Japan's attack on U.S. soil on that day in 1941. This two-hour special spotlights secrets and little-known details about FDR's leadership and decision-making during the critical hours after the attack. Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After also explores the treatment of Japanese Americans in the wake of the attack. Students will learn about the context in which the U.S. entered World War II, and will be able to explore questions of leadership and ethics during this tumultuous era in world history.


Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After would be useful for History, Global Studies and Politics courses and for course units and lectures on World War II. It is appropriate for middle school and high school students.

Mexico gang 'admits student deaths'

Suspected Mexican gang members have confessed to killing more than 40 students who went missing six weeks ago, the attorney general says.
Ajarn Donald's insight:

Mexican Attorney General Jesus Murillo: ''I know that the information we have obtained causes great pain in the families''

Continue reading the main storyRelated StoriesAnger and frustration in IgualaMayor held in Mexico missing caseMexicans march over missing students

Suspected gang members have confessed to killing more than 40 students missing for six weeks, Mexican Attorney General Jesus Murillo has said.

He said three alleged gang members claimed the students were handed over to them by police.

They said some were already asphyxiated and they shot the others dead, before setting fire to all the bodies.

A total of 43 students went missing after clashing with police on 26 September in the town of Iguala.

The suspects from the Guerreros Unidos drug gang were recently arrested in connection with the disappearances.

Relatives of the missing said they had been told that six bags of unidentified human remains had been found along a river near where the students vanished.

Mr Murillo warned that it would be difficult to identify the charred remains and that authorities would continue to consider the students as missing until DNA tests confirmed the identities.

Previous searches have uncovered mass graves in the area, but initial tests suggested they did not contain the remains of the students.
