Episode Summary

Teacher Appreciation Day
MIT physics professor Walter Lewin is here to chat with Martha about teaching and demonstrate two physics experiments. Professor Lewin, who is 72 years old, has become a web superstar; you can find his lectures on iTunes U, MIT Open Courseware, Google, and YouTube. Teach for America, founded in 1990 by Wendy Kopp, is an organization that recruits high-achieving recent college graduates of all academic majors to commit to teaching for two years in public schools. The goal of Teach for America is to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising future leaders and placing them in schools where poverty is high and in areas where education is subpar. More than 17,000 people have joined the Teach for America corps since 1990. Members have been placed in more than 1,000 schools in 26 regions nationwide. Special thanks to Jason Kamras for sharing this helpful information.moreless
