This week like most weeks, I find myself seeking ideas for our chats, and inevitably it is through conversations with others when inspiration strikes.
So I am going to cheat and name 2- the second one is from SugarLand- the Song Stand Up. I love this song because it is a call to action. I heard this when Wisconsin was witness to a political campaign against education, so it was easy for me to make the connection to this fight. However I believe this song could be used as the voice for anyone trying to do what they think is right. This is the victim standing up to the bully or tormentor, the David's of the world standing up to Goliath, it is the voice of all those who have had enough and want to see change and are willing to take action! I love this song because I too often stand quietly by, and in the last few years have begun to raise up and empower my voice in education.
Anyone who has a theme song must be rocking it! They must be something special! So this leads me to the second concept that is inspired by a lesson from Michael Milton, @42ThinkDeep who used superheroes to help his students understand the important powers of the Bill of Rights. And as long as I have a video stream going, here is a THROWBACK THURSDAY superhero video greatness!
Tonight's topic is about our role as heroes to our students and the power we have! Time to celebrate the superhero in all of us!
