  1. Teaching in the US vs. the rest of the world

    Teachers in America have a uniquely tough job. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    From hours worked to pay rates, countries like Finland, Japan, and South Korea make teaching a more respected and sustainable profession.

  2. Significance Roulette 2

    In Significance Roulette 1, I demonstrated that running a typical experiment is like spinning a roulette wheel to obtain a p value. Here I explain how running a replication of an initial experiment that obtained, for example, p = .05, is also like spinning a particular roulette wheel of p values. I then explain p intervals, the 80% prediction interval for the p value, following an initial experiment. These intervals are very long! The conclusion has to be that p values are enormously variable and totally unreliable. We simply should not use them. There are much better ways! See www.thenewstatistics.com

  3. Significance Roulette 1

    The p value is extremely unreliable, enormously variable. In fact, running a typical experiment, to obtain a p value, is equivalent to spinning a roulette wheel marked with a very wide range of p values. We simply should not use p values. There are much better ways to draw conclusions from data. See www.thenewstatistics.com

  4. Ten Minute English and British History #07 - The Late Anglo-Saxons and King Cnut

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the reign of Æthelred the Unready and the many problems he faced, most notably the Vikings. The reign of Cnut and his many achievements and his legacy alongside those of his two sons, Harold and Harthacnut are also examined. This period is the last time that a Scandinavian would rule England but their legacy changed England forever.

    Recommended books:

    Recommended Reading:

    James Campbell et al. - The Anglo-Saxons (1991) - You’ll only have to see this book one more time in the recommendations. But seriously, it’s unmatched as far as an overview of Anglo-Saxon England is concerned.

    Timothy Bolton - Cnut the Great (2017) - A new work and a good one at that. It’s very pro-Cnut and is about changing the modern-day opinion of him from that of a conquering Viking to a modernising statesmen. Very good, though.

    Michael Wood - In Search of the Dark Ages (2005) - Originally published in 81 so beware of straight-up believing everything. He covers most major Anglo-Saxon kings including Æthelred the Unready. It’s very accessible and the chapters on Offa and Eric Bloodaxe are definitely worth a read.

  5. Ten Minute English and British History #06 - The Birth of England

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the unification of the Anglo-Saxon/Scandinavian kingdoms in Britain during the tenth century. It begins with Edward the Elder’s conquests and ends with the assassination of Edward the Martyr. Some consider this to be the birth of an England but since the Anglo-Saxons didn’t really think of it like that, it’s hard to argue.

    Recommended Reading:

    James Campbell et al. - The Anglo-Saxons (1991) - I will never stop recommending this book to everyone. Just be aware it is not up to date with the changes in the opinion of modern scholarship.

    Sarah Foot - Æthelstan: The First King of England (2011). A very good book (as is all of the Yale English Monarch series) which covers pretty much everything.

  7. Ten Minute English and British History #17 - The Early Tudors: Henry VIII and the Church of England

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the aftermath of Wars of the Roses through the reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII of the Tudor dynasty. It covers Henry VII’s attempts to stabilise the kingdom and bring it powerful allies. Most of it focuses on the reign of his son, Henry VIII and his wars with France, his many wives and his notorious break with Rome and the formation of the Church of England.

    Recommended Books:

    John Guy, ‘Tudor England’ - A very detailed introductory book which covers all of the Tudors and particularly focuses on Henry VIII. Gives a good overview of court intrigue, too.

    Robert Titler and Norman Jones (eds.), A Companion to Tudor Britain - Much more detailed (best for undergrads) thematically arranged book which focus more on religious, social and economic changes than political. Has good detail concerning Wales and Scotland as well.

  8. Ten Minute English and British History #18 - The Late Tudors: Elizabeth and the Spanish Armada

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the reigns of Henry VIII’s three children, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. It follows Edward’s approach to church reform and his untimely death and Mary’s attempt to undo this with the help of her husband, King Philip II of Spain. After Mary’s death, Elizabeth took over and set England back on the course of Protestantism and aiding others which annoyed Philip who subsequently unleashed the Spanish Armada. The armada failed, leaving elizabeth to consolidate her reign which saw the flowering of the English Renaissance and her failure to secure an heir which ended her dynasty, beginning the reign of the House of Stuart.

    (Same books as last episode but they’re both great)

  10. Ten Minute History - Charlemagne and the Carolingian Empire (Short Documentary)

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the turmoil in the Frankish Kingdom which led to the rise of Charles Martel who famously defeated the invading forces of the Umayyad Caliphate at the Battle of Tours. His reign and that of his son, Pippin III, who appointed himself as king are briefly covered before the reign of Charlemagne is examined in detail. Charlemagne is without a doubt one of the most famous European monarchs and the Renaissance of Learning, his conquests and famously, his being crowned as Roman Emperor by Leo III are only a few of his achievements. His reign lasted for 47 years and after his grandsons divided the empire, the remnants became the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire.
