Reince Priebus Needs to Leave Trump's White House. Today. | New learning | Scoop.it
He made the FBI mess even messier, and he can't clean it up.
Paul's insight:

You can't use the goddamn FBI to squash news stories you don't like any more than you can send the FBI out to shoot the guy who dented your fender outside the goddamn pro shop. Do you think the guys with the badges are valet parking attendants or your own private security goons? And you can't do it when the FBI is already investigating you on suspicions of the very same conduct detailed in the stories you're trying to squash. What in the hell is wrong with you, man?

Social Justice Projects in the Classroom

Social Justice Projects in the Classroom | New learning | Scoop.it
Successful classroom social justice projects require raising students' awareness through empathy, giving them choice and voice in creating their projects, and providing advocacy and aid opportunities.
Paul's insight:

So important to allow students to have a voice - "We should make space in our classrooms for students to express their concerns and ask questions about our world in a public forum. Rather than writing essays or journals for the teacher's eyes only, publishing an authentic product for the world to see adds purpose and meaning to student work."
