BAFTA Guru Lecture by Charlie Kaufman. Both extremely thought provoking and inspirational. I listened to this on BAFTAs podcast, and got teary eyed when he talks about the value of our own perspectives. The video is only highlights - I highly recommend listening to the whole audio lecture.

This website gives some sample pages from the  book, 50 Debate Prompts for Kids. I liked this because the book first teaches the basic guidelines and reasoning for debates, then equips the teacher with potential topics and how to teach them. This would be useful in any grade classroom because you can adapt the ideas for the different levels, but the objectives for debates stay the same.

I just want to take a moment to say thank you to Jennifer. She has shown me, and several other girls out there, that it is perfectly okay to have curves and to not only accept your body, but love to love it. Thank you, Jen, for being a REAL role model.
