Netflix is a Great Resource for the Classroom

My students are watching Guns, Germs, and Steel a great documentary by National Geographic base on Jared Diamond's book by the same name. My school library doesn't have this video (I looked). My county library doesn't have it either. I could have bought it, but I didn't have to because I have a Netflix subscription. I didn't even have to have them send me the disk, this documentary is one of many that is streamed online.

If you have been thinking about getting a subscription to Netflix, now you have one more compelling reason to spend the $9!

My name is Catina Magby.I am a student here at the University of South Alabama.I think this a great idea.When the schools can not provide ways for students to see thing in a new way,I believe a new route is great.Netflix is awesome and I will keep this in mind.
