Renaissance Education Group, Inc. announces the launch of www.PersonalProfessors.com, an open learning community for high school math and science. We are a simply a place where you can get real teaching from real teachers. As an open learning community, we invite you to come and go as you please; join us for one month only to refresh your knowledge or study a concept, or join us for a school year for a full course.

Here's how we work. Our teachers schedule several live lectures each week that follow the strict California high school standards. At the scheduled time, you simply log on and click on the link to the live lecture. During the lecture you see and hear everything the teacher writes and says, live and in real time! After each live lecture, our faculty retire to the Commons to answer questions from our students. Between lectures, students and faculty engage in deeper processing of the material in our discussions. All lectures are placed in our subject area archives for anytime access.

PersonalProfessors.com isn't like having a teacher instructing you at home, it is having a teacher teach you at home.

We are not text content. We believe that the education on the Web shouldn't be about document distribution, it should be about facilitating real teaching and allowing free and easy communication between the learner and the teacher.

Come and see what top homeschool educators are talking about! Let the Teaching Tank make hands-on science a reality and unleash the scientist in every child.
 
Teaching Tank, by Captivation, Inc. http://www.tchg.com
 
Wow! Captivation, Inc. sent us their intriguing Teaching Tank and three 'how-to-do-it' books (called Discovery books), absolutely full of science experiments. To me, science is somewhat difficult to teach. Unless you do something 'hands on', it seems a struggle to get children to learn scientific principles. I don't care for the idea of referring to a 'science experiments book' only. The Teaching Tank is different. It draws you in, immediately. The experiments you can do with it are phenomenal -- children get wide-eyed, as they 'see', 'smell', 'hear' and 'feel' chemistry, physics and biology. You must check this out! My husband and our kids easily put the tank together and then got busy browsing through the Discovery books that come with this, to joyfully figure out just which experiment to do first. They could not decide! Teaching Tank has so much to offer! Grow plants in crystals right inside the tank. Observe wiggly little living creatures in the tank...ew, ew, ew (but so fun!)! -- I could go on and on and on...but go see it for yourself! For sure, kids of all ages will get excited about this huge kit. Get your homeschooler a Teaching Tank, and watch them gain a whole new love (and understanding!) for science!

Understanding basic chemistry is the perfect gift for students on the verge of the next level of education.
