This Web site is the online complement to Make Up Your Mind, a recently aired episode of the PBS series Scientific American Frontiers. This site would be a great addition to classroom material on brain anatomy and function, and could be tailored for a broad range of grade levels. Features include a Teaching Guide with downloadable activities and a quiz (for grades 5-8), plus Web links and other references. Users can also watch the entire documentary online, and view related stories from earlier episodes. The online version of the program allows users to jump to specific sections within each video segment, which would make it easier for educators to pick and choose segments to use in the classroom. The site also contains a simply presented interactive tour of the human brain.
