The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is a non-profit institution dedicated to supporting high quality research and education. They offer multiple resources, both for teachers, students and scientists, and their website contains very useful and interesting information.
The article "Free Educational Resources Available on the HHMI website", highlights some of the HHMI resources in regards to education. For instance, HHMI has produced a series of short films about evolution that are available to teachers and non-profit educational institutions for free. These excellent short films, 10 to 15 minutes long, are perfect to show in a school setting. The movies can be a starting point for classroom discussions and provide real life examples of evolution. HHMI also provides additional material for use in the classroom in conjunction with these films.
