How to do a Minecraft club?

I work at a middle school and our after school program wants to set up a Minecraft club. We want a group of about 15 people and I want to find the cheapest and simplest way to do this. I was looking at MinecraftEdu as an option but I wanted to ask y'all if you knew of a better/cheaper way to do things.

Best way to learn French in my spare time?

Hi everyone, I am a 24 y/o English native about to start a PhD in London. During the next 3 years, I would very much like to begin learning French alongside my doctoral studies, and I am interested in finding out the most effective and efficient way of going about this. Realistically I will probably be able and willing to dedicate between one and two hours a day to studying French. I am interested in learning to both speak and write the language in equal measure. Any advice is much appreciated.

How do I homeschool a preschooler?

My 3 1/2-year-old nephew was recently taken out of preschool because his parents can no longer afford it. I’m unemployed (and job hunting) and I’ve become the de facto nanny/babysitter. He’s a bright, active little boy who knows his shapes, colors, letters, numbers, how to spell his name, etc. He was learning how to write and I want to continue with that but I'm not sure how. (I have no kids and until him haven't spent much time with small children.) [more inside]

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood... and I took the one where I went crazy for a month to raise my score 40 points... and that uh... has made all the difference?

GRE-Filter: I was happy with my GRE scores. Then, I received word that I have the opportunity to get into a super-duper-top-tier doctoral program previously inaccessible. However, my Quantitative Score--while still in the range of accepted scores over the years for this program--is now less-than-stellar relatively speaking. Is it crazy to think I could study intensely for about a month and improve my score 30-50 points? Am I overthinking this? [more inside]

What wine course would interest you?

My friend is starting a wine education company in Canada. He's trying to come up with a list of courses that would appeal to the widest audience. Right now he has a course on VQA wines, Italian wines, French wines, "How to find value wine", pinot noirs of the world (Oregon, Burgundy, California, New Zealand...) and is contemplating a course in Cabernets. Can you think of something that is missing or that would interest you more than what he has?

Childrens' educational book series

I'm looking for recommendations for childrens' educational book series.

Though I passed it without trouble, I feel like traditional textbooks didn't teach make me understand a lot.
