It's shipping day today at izzit.org, and this week was a big one - over 3600 DVDs going out today! Each of those mailing bags (we had to use the big bags this week) holds about 100 DVDs.
Half of those are our newly updated The Great Depression 2.0!
We had two teams running shipping this week, and it took us about 3 1/2 hours to get them all prepared to go out.
Here's hoping we have more great weeks like this one. (So don't forget to tell your teaching friends about us!)

Our new DVD, The Great Depression 2.0, is flying off the shelves! Just last week, more than half our inventory was selected by teachers eager for this useful, updated tool for their classroom.
But don't worry - we've already ordered more copies! So if you've been looking for a video to help you teach the Great Depression, look no longer. The Great Depression 2.0 is available now!
Perhaps you've been using the original version of our DVD. Please visit the product's webpage to see the updated Teacher's Guide. (If you're eligible to pick a DVD, you can choose the new version, The Great Depression 2.0, because our website considers it an entirely different product.)
Have you gotten your free izzit.org DVD yet this year? *
*(Offer available to all US K-12 teachers.)

Summer zoomed past us and by now, most of you are back to the classroom. We’ve got some great stuff coming up for you.
Great Depression 2.0 is our first “new” release for the year. It’s actually an updated version of our popular Great Depression DVD. We found that there was some confusion on some of the main points, so we’ve updated it to clarify. It’s got a new introduction, a new conclusion, and the Teacher Guide has also been updated. (If you selected the original version and are eligible to choose another FREE DVD, you can select Great Depression 2.0 – it’s considered a different product by our system, so it will allow you to choose the updated version.)
Want to win a 7” Kindle Fire HD tablet? Check out our Back-to-School contest! There’s no essay involved, but we do want to know about your summer vacation!
As for me…during one of my summer road trips, I visited the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, MI. It was beautiful! So head over to our contest page, read the rules, and tell us about something you did this summer to enter!
