“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Albert Einstein
For a second time, Albert Einstein has been the subject of these posts. As “our pal, Al” on Peg + Cat, he shined light on Hanukkah. This week, NOVA’s Inside Einstein’s Mind airs on WGBY Wednesday, December 16 — TONIGHT — at 8:00pm. By retracing Einstein’s experiments in thought, NOVA reveals the simple but powerful ideas that reshaped our understanding of gravity and illuminated the theory of general relativity.
Einstein in the classroom can be a source of inspiration, not only because of his brilliant mind but for his humanity. You’ll find resources on this iconic figure of the 20th century by searching “Albert Einstein” at PBS LearningMedia, and there’s more on Einstein at NOVA.
