I thought this video was thought-provoking. I presented the video to my classroom with mixed results.
Some comments from ninth grade students:
- "I get distracted when I read. It's not ideas I don't like, it's reading."
- "I think it's ironic they posted it on Youtube."
- I get it but it's hard to explain."
- "Well, I don't read but I'm still smart."
- "I read in magazines what Lady Gaga's wearing, does that count?"
- "Oh, it reverses!"
- "They say 'Lady Gaga" with an "R" sound."
