Inspiring stuff found on the intrawebs ver. 1.0

Postby Rev. Rowan Redbeard » Thu Sep 20, 2012 5:49 pm

Another forum I belong to has a "Best thing found on Facebook today" thread. Unfortunately, it's being hijacked by asinine political photos and captions.

So, no politics (or at least no ad hominem politics), no hate, no stupidity. This thread is for hope, love, kindness, people working together in unison, unexpected happy endings, and related material.

Have fun!

This is the video I intend to play at the start of Year 7 and the end of Year 11.

I also intend to get pictures of the little sods every week to make a film of them growing up but I can see issues with parents complaining. I still think it will work nicely for most of them.

I'd totally forgotten about that video. It's been so many years since I heard that. So many truisms in there, I think your students will love it. Not sure about the photos though. You'll need to clear that with both the school and the parents. You know how paranoid people can become about the most innocent of things.

Here's a video showing that even monkeys understand the concept of equal work for equal pay.
