Love Letters: Lance Bass Loves Laurel, Mississippi
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Lance Bass is a singer, actor and producer best known for being the bass singer in 'N Sync. After his boy band days, Bass starred in and produced the film On The Line. His autobiography, Out of Sync, which detailed his rise to stardom and discussed his homosexuality, was released in 2007. In the meantime, Bass had found time to move to Star City, Russia, where he trained as an astronaut in an attempt to travel to the International Space Station.

Gift a Teacher
Education Week - over 5 years
A couple of months ago, as part of my encouragement to you to help a teacher "see the light" regarding gifted students, I suggested giving a regular classroom teacher a book about gifted education. Some of you asked for specific suggestions, and today I have that list for you. This is by no means a complete list of great options; rather, it's a list of many good possibilities with which I happen to have some familiarity. Anyone who has another book to recommend that I don't have on the list below is certainly welcome to mention it in the comments section. In most cases, I have linked the book's title to the publishing company's webpage where you can purchase it. For teachers who want ideas of in-class strategies they can implement to differentiate for their advanced learners: Advancing Differentiation: Thinking and Learning for the 21st Century, by Richard Cash. Along with the enclosed CD-ROM, this handbook is an excellent resource for those teachers who are ready t ...
