Cool Cat Teacher's Cool Sites of the Day! 04/13/2008
Cool summary of an article by Liz B. Davis -- Liz took the article and extracted the most valuable bits to her using google Docs. This methodology is fascinating, but even moreso the fact we may all begin doing this together with Diigo.
**WARNING - EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE LINKED VIDEO**
This is an example of a very successful youtube show that many teens are watching and viewing. WARNING - there is explicit language here, however, I find this "question of the day" on Wendesday, the 606,954 views and the 20 video responses and 777,000 teen responses interesting.
Again, this is NOT a video to show your classes, however it IS a video to understand how teens are talking about and trying to make sense of the world. Step back and look at what is happening... and notice, who is not included in the equation!
Also, I do not advocate what this guy suggests doing! I do advocate holding people accountable for what they've done and that needs to happen in this case. The blame should go squarely on the kids that did it, for when it doesn't, people know they can get away with anything and not be held responsible. It would set a dangerous precedent.
