MERLOT Voices

Putting Educational Innovations into Practice. Meet and discuss teaching

Resources

As promised, here are two examples from a Safe Schools project I managed under US DOEd.   The first one was highlighted by then Deputy Sec of Dept. of Ed, Kevin Jennings, at a White House event (pretty sure that's the closest thing I can call a claim to fame - besides my children I suppose :).  The point is that it captured a lot of attention because it gave hard data in a way that appealed to the viewers' emotions, and that's what's remembered.
