                                                                                         By Larry Ferlazzo

     I wrote a short article in the May, 2007 issue of Educators eZine sharing a list of ten free email newsletters that I’ve found helpful to me in my work as a teacher.  There wasn’t space to fit a complete list of my favorites.  Here are twelve more that I recommend (the links provided connect directly to their subscription pages):
