Beginning of the Year: Non FL Related Video

Sarah Thomas is a wonderful resource and is a local teacher here in Maryland!  She posted this video to Facebook a few days ago:

It is Ashton Kutcher’s speech from the Teen Choice Awards.  It is truly a wonderful speech, and I am excited to share it with my middle school students.  Warning!  He does talk about being sexy (by being ridiculously smart, generous and thoughtful), and he uses the word “crap.”  However, I think the message is too important to overlook.  In teaching middle school, we are not only teaching skills and knowledge but also how to behave and think.  This video will definitely lead to some interesting conversations.  I hope that you can use it in an advisory setting or just within your classes.
