    You need to read more carefully. I said I DIDN'T think the questions were particularly malicious. I'm not a big fan because they are (as quoted on that link anyway) too open-ended for the kind of struggling students that would benefit the most from education overhaul.The questions might be grounds for interesting discussion in a high-level high school class, but good luck getting a bunch of struggling grade 7's who don't want to be in school to talk about "resonate" and "inspired.


    Of course this is all theoretical, since my class is Canadian and doesn't get mr. Obama's speech.

    No he doesn't. He just needs to stop being an asshole.

    Not to start the year off, didn't get a fulltime job yet.

    I'll be working in several districts as a substitute at least to start off and then try and catch on that way.

    If you don't mind me asking, what subject area do you teach?


    Anyway, the hand full of friends/co-workers that I spoke to who have a problem with this speech are hardcore right wingers.

    I think that they presume that Obama is going to try to turn the kids gay or tell them all to have sex and then get abortions.

    I didn't vote for Obama, but I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt and allow him to try to reach kids in a way that most of could never do.

    I believe that Obama has good intentions.







    By the way... when is "Obama" going to stop tripping my spell check?

    Social Studies.

    I taught Economics, and a little bit of US History this past spring.
