This is a terrific resource for those little pockets of time when classes are changing and some students are ready to begin while others are just arriving. Interesting topics that spur students to do further research, to consider issues presented, to interpret quotations of famous figures, to talk to one another, and to share ideas. This resource gets them thinking.
