Videos: Strange Charm, embarassing yourself by saying things wrong, and more!

Since we homeschool I learn all sorts of fascinating things, so I plan on using this new widget to share carefully selected interesting, informative, uplifting, humorous, and almost inevitably “educational” things I find.

  1. The first video betrays my new-found geekiness (“Strange Charm” – what a great name!), but it makes a potentially complicated subject easy to grasp and so much fun you want to learn the words.
  2. The second and third are entertaining explanations of how to avoid embarrassing yourself by saying things “wrong.”
  3. The fourth compares metric vs. imperial  measure.

When I first taught my kids the metric system, it was so easy I  didn’t teach them imperial measurement until (a few years later) it became obvious it was time to know it. BTW, NO student should EVER have to waste time doing silly conversions – use calculators or computers for such pointless busy work. Why? When you use system of measurement you USE it and don’t waste time converting back and forth – and if you must, certainly not on paper! Seriously, just know and use one or the other. Period.
