https://barbaragregorich.wordpress.com/2021/07/15/the-f-words-english-teacher-hero/ A tribute to my high school English teacher and to all English teachers.
The Leading Harlem Renaissance Unit in America – since 1995
https://nexusbooks.org/harlem-renaissance-lesson-plans

“SONGS OF THE SEVENTH SON is one of many thoughtful chapters in The Harlem Renaissance volume of NEXUS. Each volume…is a hybrid of a well-written interdisciplinary textbook and a lively, attractive magazine….” CLASSROOM NOTES PLUS, NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English)

NEXUS REPORT CARD

GENE MAEROFF
“Nexus is a remarkable publication, one of the best of its kind for promoting interdisciplinary work by students. Each volume reflects careful research and is filled with information that both engages students and advances their understanding of how the disciplines complement each other.” —founding director of the Hechinger Institute on Education & the Media, COLUMBIA TEACHERS COLLEGE, former Senior Fellow of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, & former national education correspondent for the New York Times.

THE COLLEGE BOARD
"A beautifully produced glossy magazine that links the text to the period’s history, music, art, theater, and science to provide additional entry points into literature. Supplements and team-teaching guidelines suggest activities and additional readings in each discipline… all Nexus volumes emphasize the critical skills and analogical thinking that are crucial for success on the SAT.”

TEMPO
“With an impressive group of contributors and consultants, Publisher/Editor Jesse Bryant Wilder has put together a stunning set of challenging materials that will provide outstanding learning experiences for secondary students.”— Journal of the Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented

NCAIS
“NEXUS is a visually exciting, reader friendly magazine with articles contributed by nationally known experts in their fields. Crisp scholarship, challenging activities, and teacher supplements make learning entertaining and challenging. NEXUS brings the past to life by using a lively writing style and colorful or intriguing anecdotes, and by highlighting the “story” in history.” North Carolina Association of Independent Schools Newsletter

HISTORY MATTERS
“NEXUS serves as a powerful interdisciplinary resource for teachers by saving them a lot of legwork.” – National Council of History Education

ABOUT.COM
"All NEXUS units combined make an excellent and thorough language arts course. The units are insightful and well written....I highly recommend the units."

THE OLD SCHOOLHOUSE MAGAZINE
“The layout is beautiful, using art work, photography and fonts that are well-designed and very pleasing. The style of writing is clear and easy to understand, defining terms that might not be readily understood by students.

These magazines include articles on a wide array of subjects, allowing you to introduce many aspects of an historical time period without having to research the introductory information; it has all been done for you.

There is much to recommend these magazines to a homeschool family. They include a tremendous amount of information. They are beautifully designed, and offer interviews, pictures, and other details that would take hours and hours of research to compile.

The NEXUS book’s ability to cross over into many disciplines and address not just normal history topics, the Crusades or historical biographies, but also mathematics, science, physics, music, arts, medicine, architecture, etc. It is rare for academic supplementary resources to be able to pull this off with style, but the NEXUS books succeed.

A NEXUS book’s is a fabulous choice for a supplementary resource. The chapters are rife with interesting information and the multidisciplinary offerings are well worth the price of the magazine in that they give period information across a variety of subjects, which is difficult to find elsewhere.”

TEACHERS:

MICHAEL W. BERGEN, Communication Arts Chair, APPLETON EAST HIGH SCH., Appleton, WI — “I haven’t seen any better material for connecting the curriculum, especially world literature and world history—and I have a lot of experience connecting the curriculum. In one instance, for example, my kids did their research topics on the artists and poets of the Harlem Renaissance and they created mini-documentaries on the artists or poets using the NEXUS materials. It went extremely well. You can see the editor has really done his research. His love of the material really shows.”

SUSAN NEUN, English Chair, LAHSER HIGH SCH., Bloomfield Hills School District, Bloomfield Hills, MI — “We’ve had very successful experiences with NEXUS. The presentation is accessible to advanced and to regular students. It is an excellent compilation of materials. I think these books are absolute treasures, just remarkable. For a single teacher especially, it just pulls everything together. The magazine can take the place of a team of teachers.”

MARTI KOLLER, English teacher, BALDWIN-WOODVILLE HIGH SCH., Baldwin, WI — “Kids who are harder to engage enjoy the visuals and the real-world applications. Overall each volume provides research that any teacher would love to do, but doesn’t have the time to do, and the fact that NEXUS does it for us is very valuable.”

DR. PAULETTE GOLL, English Chair, LINCOLN-WEST HIGH SCH, Cleveland, OH — “NEXUS is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. You’ve done an exceptional job with Romeo and Juliet and the Renaissance.”

MARJORIE MACKEOWN, English Teacher, TECUMSEH HIGH SCH., in New Carlisle, OH — “I really think Romeo & Juliet and the Renaissance is great, and the students enjoy it too.”

ORELIA DANN, history teacher, GREENHILLS SCHOOL, Ann Arbor, MI — “NEXUS magazines are wonderful! They are creative, scholarly and entertaining. The students love using them, and I just love the interdisciplinary approach. The magazines are also great for projects. I can send a group of students off to work from them. For example, we used HyperStudio and “Arab Astronomy” in The Lion in Winter volume with the 9th grade.”

SUSAN RYAN, English Chair, IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, Westchester, IL — “We have found the NEXUS volumes wonderful. They’ve been used in a number of classes in 10th, 11th and 12th grade, including our sophomore World Culture class, which incorporates World Literature and World History. We particularly like the correlations to art, and the students like to see the connections between different subject areas. They find that very interesting. We also find that NEXUS is particularly valuable to visual learners who are not engaged by traditional means.”

DONNA SHERIDAN, English teacher, MAGNIFCAT, Rocky River, OH — “The kids loved Romeo & Juliet and the Renaissance. It was exciting to watch them make the connections. We had an interdisciplinary week on Galileo and NEXUS fit in perfectly. They started with the Galileo articles in NEXUS and then used the magazine to explore other interdisciplinary connections. The kids couldn’t stop; they loved finding and making the connections. It was fascinating to see, very very exciting. NEXUS worked really well.”

KATHERINE SIMS, English teacher, LAND ‘O LAKES HIGH SCH., Land ‘O Lakes, FL — “We’ve received two years of NEXUS subscriptions, and we think they are the most wonderful things that walk the earth.”

CAROL DANK, English teacher, KENT ROOSEVELT HIGH SCH., Kent, OH — “The more you use NEXUS, the more uses you find for it.”

DR. LINDA MEIXNER, English teacher, VALLEY FORGE HIGH SCH., Parma, OH—“Even students who are difficult to manage are captivated by NEXUS magazine.”

R.R. WILKINSON, Kittredge, CO, home school teacher — “I am absolutely stunned by the quality of these materials—thank you so much!”

JENNIFER DEVER, English teacher, BOWLING GREEN HIGH SCH., Bowling Green, OH—“The students are learning and having fun. Yours is a great product!”

THERESA FRENCH, English Teacher, from EAST LEYDEN HIGH SCH., Franklin Park, IL (suburb of Chicago) — “NEXUS is wonderful. I’ve been telling everyone about it.”

AMY BENJAMIN, English Teacher, HENDRICK HUDSON HIGH SCH., Montrose, NY (outside NYC) — “The students respond very well to it. I think NEXUS is great.”

LINDA WOLKENBREIT, Humanities Coordinator for the VOORHEESVILLE NY SCH. DISTRICT — “We were very pleased with the quality and the fact that it is interdisciplinary.”

ANNE MULLIGAN, English chair, BISHOP KEARNEY HIGH SCH., Brooklyn, NY—“NEXUS is magnificent. We are so excited about it here.”

BEWARE the IDES of MARCH (3/15) JULIUS CAESAR: https://nexusbooks.org/julius-caesar-ancient-rome
THE COLLEGE BOARD: Blood of the Republic, Battle of Philippi –
“An exciting narrative re-enactment of the battle, based on ancient accounts and modern scholarship, elucidates Act V of Shakespeare’s play.”

THE COLLEGE BOARD: Julius Caesar, Father of the Roman Empire – Unit Introduction –
“Four pages expand on Cicero’s assessment of the emperor as a man who, ‘by a mixture of intimidation and indulgence…inculcated in a free community the habit of servitude.’ This chapter draws on compelling details from Sallust, Appian, Dio Cassius, and Plutarch to illustrate Caesar’s brilliance as well as his deviousness. A subsection on Caesar’s self-confidence and his vanity sums up his contradictions smartly, concluding where Shakespeare’s play begins.”

THE COLLEGE BOARD: Brutus, the Noblest Roman – An Object Lesson in Liberty –
“This section looks at the relationship between Caesar and Brutus, the character and Republicanism of Brutus and Antony, and the establishment of the Republic, with generous quotations from Shakespeare’s play.”

THE COLLEGE BOARD: Lesson in Roman Art: Reality or Mirage? (with critical thinking exercises embedded in the text) –
“Reinforces figurative language reading skills through wonderful illustrations of illusionistic mosaics, portraiture, and sculpture.”

THE COLLEGE BOARD: Aftermath of the Assassination –
“From Cicero’s Philippics, this section explores the realignment of principal players: Cicero’s loyalty to Caesar’s heir, Octavius, against Antony; resistance of Antony and of Brutus; the cycle of revenge; and Antony and Cleopatra. Points out some differences between historical accounts and Shakespeare’s play.”


THE COLLEGE BOARD: Gruesome Games –
“Examines the gladiators, arenas, and the political function of the games, with reference to the film Gladiator and a supplement on Spartacus.”

THE COLLEGE BOARD: Catapults –
“Looks at the physics and math of the catapult, including how to extract cube roots using calipers and calculate firing distances based on the weight of armatures. Also includes a supplement on Roman solar heating.”

ELECTIC HOMESCHOOL ONLINE
"Nexus: Julius Caesar & Ancient Rome from Republic to Empire is a great supplement for any Ancient World high school course. The thirty-page publication provides interesting information and excellent points for discussion to move students through the material....The Nexus magazine is well worth the $12.00/each to infuse eclectically succinct vignettes about Ancient Rome and Julius Caesar. A teacher's guide with supplementary lesson plans is also available."
