    Hiawatha – The Great Law of Peace – Extra History – #1

    Before Europeans arrived, on what they would name ‘North American soil’ Five Nations came together and formed a confederacy. They were guided by the will of the people and they created a constitution with 117 articles that guaranteed the rights of the people, and the responsibilities of their leaders. That constitution, the Great Law of Peace, still guides those people to this day. So who are they? Well, those Europeans we mentioned would call them Iroquois, but that’s not really their name. They are the Haudenosaunee: “People of the Longhouse” We don’t know exactly when they formed their confederacy only that it certainly came before the arrival of Europeans, perhaps…

    L. Frank Manriquez – Opening Ceremony | Bioneers

    [SINGING] Ooooooh [SINGING] Ohhhhhhh… [SINGING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE] How’s that for a Hollywood Indian? [LAUGHTER] [CHEERS] I didn’t… I guess I left out a word: How’s that for an extinct Hollywood Indian? So in welcoming you to these lands, again in the name and the honor of the Miwok peoples, I’d like you to think about all the peoples of every place, of every place. I’ve been to your Scotland and seen your blue people naked on that hilltop, but that we embrace the indigenous because that is the answer. And it’s all very clear to everyone. I’d like people to throw in a little prayer for [NATIVE WORD]. It’s…

    Early Christian Schisms – Before Imperium – Extra History – #1

    We are going to start this off in a way that we’ve never started off an Extra History before; with a disclaimer. These next few episodes are designed to help modern students get a handle on one of the most confusing and yet most important parts of Roman history. The topics discussed in these episodes are vital to understanding the Roman mind; to understanding why Rome fell and how the Western world made the transition from the Classical Era to the Medieval one. We’re going to try and make this as engaging as we can, but it is going to involve a lot of nitty-gritty detail about doctrinal disputes. To…

    Math Antics – Common Denominator LCD

    In the last video we learned how to find what I like to call the ‘easiest common denominator’. And personally, I prefer to use that method of getting a common denominator whenever I can because it’s quick and easy to remember. But, I can think of at least two cases where it would be better to use a different method to convert ‘unlike’ fractions into ‘like’ fractions. The first case is when one of the fraction’s bottom numbers is a multiple of the other fraction’s bottom number. And the second case is when your teacher says that you HAVE to use this other method! This new method is called finding…

    IEP 101: What is a Special Education Advocate?

    [MUSIC] So Julie, in the arena of special education advocacy, we’ve talked about special education attorneys. Well, everyone knows whether or not you’re an attorney. You can check it out. Are they licensed to practice law is pretty much the question. Whether or not they’re a special education attorney is a different issue. But what is a special education advocate? I only wish that there was a criteria that I had to meet in order to rise to the level of being a certified special education advocate. Me too. Unfortunately, Jennifer, there is not.
