Signs announces a new publication reviewing films for the feminist classroom. Check out the reviews in issue the first issue.

Included films: My Daughter the Terrorist, No! The Rape Documentary, Living on the Fault Line, Where Race and Family Meet, Slumdog Millionaire, The Breast Cancer Diaries

And Jessie over at Thinking at the Interface has a fantastic list of documentaries for classroom use.

The New York Times has an article on the video “The Story of Stuff” about the effects of consumption.

Tomorrow’s Professor has a great article on testing and grading strategies.

A few guidelines about testing and grading can help instructors to: (1) strengthen the process of instruction, (2) clarify the diagnostic value of testing, (3) make a fair assessment of what each student knows, and (4) report this achievement through grades.

And the Everyday Sociology Blog has a great piece on “cognitive dissonance” and sociology classes. I’m tempted to send my summer students as required reading. What do you think?
