I just stumbled on this. It looks like a good resource if you're looking for documentaries and historical fiction movies to supplement your history curriculum. I noted 16 that appear to be of interest for our study of history from 1600 to 1850. A bunch won't be available on Netflix, I'm sure, and what remains may not pass the kosher test, but it's at least a very long list of potential candidates! I'm happy if we can find 4-6 (fiction/non-fiction) per year. We'll see!
In other news, DD8 is spending the night in Atlanta with a dear friend. She's having a great time and hasn't missed us one bit. :) It's nice to see her having adventures!
Today I started tutoring a bas mitzvah student! We had a wonderful hour together, studying a book called Halachos Bas Yisrael (The Laws for a Daughter of Israel). We're incorporating a lot of the narration techniques I use for learning with my kids and it was very interesting to do it with an older (almost-11-year-old) student. Loved it! Today we read the introduction, mostly focusing on women's mitzvah obligations and exemptions. Next week: morning hand washing. I feel like I have a chevrusa again (study partner) and it's very nice.
So, a good day today, in stark contrast to my decidedly sluggish Sunday. Oh, well! Now to bed so I can have a not-sluggish day tomorrow!
