My History Network - a network of history students from around the world - 7 views

    This is a network for high school history students to share ideas and help each other with their history studies. Just let us know you're a teacher when you join that you're a teacher and we'll give you 'Teacher' privileges. You then can admit and monitor your students while they're on the network.
    Several new members have already joined up for 2010 and early results are very promising. If you're a high school history teacher we'd love to have you and your students along!

In fact, as they move through their teenage years, adolescents need increasing amounts of sleep - about nine hours nightly, as compared to eight hours needed by adults.

Yet, school starting times get earlier and earlier as students mature, despite the fact that puberty demands more sleep. This may have serious physical, mental, and social consequences for adolescents and negatively impact their academic performance.
