Then immediately we went around the room and shared our examples of a story. Some were creative, some were odd, and others were original. Here are what kids brought in:
Old Spice deodorant
Coca Cola stories
Ranch dressing powder
Mr. Booth's story
Dr. Drey Headphones
Before we did anything, Mrs. Smith had everyone google a man named Clay Shirky. We found that he is a good friend with Cory Doctrow, he has a blog, and that he is focused on how the internet is a social and economic force that people need to use to make a difference and change the world.
Then we watched his TED Talk.
Like we did in class you might need to watch it twice.
- The Blog for Clay Shirky's TED Talk is due Monday with all of the regular requirements.
- Read "Story" in AWNM by Monday and be prepared for fishbowl on Monday, too.
- Read "Seven Reasons Why Carrots and Sticks (Often) Don't Work" by Monday. (Annotation is optional)
