Mythbusters seriously needs to do an episode to see if two people could actually fit on that goddamn door without flipping it or sinking it so that we can finally put this issue to bed after fifteen years.
We are teachers of the masses. We are the teachers of Americans, and America is never one group, idea, ideal, or identity. We are the impartial and the supportive; we are the all inclusive. We are here to show them the future and guide them there.
We are teachers. We are not here to tell our students they are less than.
I’ve included three below. And before I get some Android/Anti-Apple nonsense in my Ask box:
iBooks Author allows PDF export if the book will be shared at no cost to the student (or end reader). It’s also arguably the easiest to use consumer-level program for creating interactive ebooks. Oh, and it’s free.
Curate learning. For decades teachers have been able to supplement adopted curriculum materials with newspaper clippings, magazine articles, and video clips. However, until the development of online curation tools, such as wikis or web-based journals, there was not a simple mechanism for organizing these resources and making them available to students.
iBooks Author provides a powerful tool for teachers to use when curating instructional materials. Unlike many web-based resources, these materials can be organized into a book-like format while still incorporating interactive features, such as hyperlinks, video clips, presentations, 3-D objects, and photo galleries. iBooks Author is designed to make quick use of materials you already have, including text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
Publish easily. iBooks Author gives teachers and students a free and accessible tool for creating digital texts. iBooks Author could easily be used by students to publish a short story for their school site digital library or as a tool for creating a portfolio of all of their work over the school year. In addition, schools and districts have expressed a great deal of interest in publishing their own materials for staff for both professional development and information updates.
Share for free. With iBooks Author, writers have multiple options for sharing their completed texts. Free and fee-based books can be shared directly with the world through the iBookstore. However, school districts and teachers who want to share their texts locally can choose two different export options: PDF and the .iBooks file format.
Not gonna lie, it still has limitations but Apple is coming closest to supporting the new age of media I am convinced is on its way. C’mon, other guys. Are we gonna let Apple rule everything?
Old English (Anglo-Saxon):Eft he axode, hu ðære ðeode nama wære þe hi of comon. Him wæs geandwyrd, þæt hi Angle genemnode wæron. Þa cwæð he, "Rihtlice hi sind Angle gehatene, for ðan ðe hi engla wlite habbað, and swilcum gedafenað þæt hi on heofonum engla geferan beon."
Middle English:In þat lond ben trees þat beren wolle, as þogh it were of scheep; whereof men maken clothes, and all þing þat may ben made of wolle. In þat contree ben many ipotaynes, þat dwellen som tyme in the water, and somtyme on the lond: and þei ben half man and half hors, as I haue seyd before; and þei eten men, whan þei may take hem.
Early Modern English:But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she Be not her maid, since she is envious; Her vestal livery is but sick and green And none but fools do wear it; cast it off. It is my lady, O, it is my love!
Modern English:Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense.

I’d like to bring this back. My friend and I want to see if there’s any sort of relationship between Hogwarts houses and personality types (we’re using Myers-Briggs for this).
If you’d like to participate, just reblog or reply to this post (or message me) with your House and type.
For houses- if you were sorted on Pottermore, I’d prefer if you used that result. If you aren’t on Pottermore, or really really don’t think that test matched you with the right house, just put the house you feel you fit in best with.
For Myers-Briggs types- if you don’t already know your Myers-Briggs type, this site is really helpful in determining which of the sixteen types best fits you. It isn’t a personality quiz, it just has information about the different elements that make up the types.
Thanks so much!
(Note- this is for our own personal nerdly enjoyment, not for Official Science or anything. When we put the data in the spreadsheet, we do not enter your username or any other identifying information- just the house and type.)
