Fun and Inspiration

In this post, I'm sharing a few YouTube videos that have been quite inspiring and some that are just fun.

Below is a TED presentation by spoken word poet and teacher, Sarah Kay. You MUST watch it and be inspired!



I also watched a documentary titled, Louder Than A Bomb, about the spoken word poetry contest held in Chicago Public Schools. It was also extremely inspiring. Below is the trailer:



Finally, does everyone but me know about the book, Goodnight iPad, a parody of the original by Margaret Wise Brown? Hilarious! See the YouTube video below...does it not perfectly capture what goes on in the homes of many of our children today? Reminds me of a colleague who told me she texts her children to tell them to come to dinner.

The video below it is in stark contrast, titled: The Joy of Books. Enjoy!
