Raising nerdy to the power of awesome.
Jocelyne Paulhus's insight:

John Green ( author of many YA novels such as "The Fault in Our Stars") and his brother Hank Green post weekly videos on youtube. While there are many funny videos with the bothers goofing off they also raise many important questions about society today and in the past. These videos can be useful resources for lessons if they are integrated properly. The videos are also short as there is a Vlogbrother rule that they can not exceed four minutes.

The story of Pride and Prejudice" update for a modern audience and told over multiple platforms such as youtube, tumblr, and twitter. While the whole series may be to long to watch in class I would recommend showing it to my students before reading the book to generate interest in the story as this production of "Pride and Prejudice" is amazing and captivating.

They Shouldn't Make You Promise that

They Shouldn't Make You Promise that | English resources | Scoop.it
Eleanor Smith has it all - just ask the people around her. She's married to a successful and respected man; they live in a beautiful home with three healthy children, and enjoy a busy social life and a good reputation. So why is Eleanor so unhappy? Her husband thinks she's just going through a bad spell and can, if she wants to, snap out of it. Her psychiatrist thinks she just has to inject a little romance into her marriage and she'll be fine. Her mother thinks she should just shut up and count her blessings. Even an anonymous woman in a doctor's office has an opinion - it's "the change." But clearly, for Eleanor, these aren't the answers. The problem goes deeper than merely a faltering marriage, a temporary depression, or simple ingratitude. With insight, compassion and no small amount of wit, Lois Simmie chronicles Eleanor's harrowing journey toward an understanding of why she feels the way she feels, and what to do about it. They Shouldn't Make You Promise That is both a joy and a heartbreak to read. It's an engrossing and rewarding tale told by an adept storyteller, a modern-day fable about promises kept, broken and regretted, and promises that should not be made.

The Harry Potter Alliance | The Weapon We Have is Love

The Harry Potter Alliance | The Weapon We Have is Love | English resources | Scoop.it
Jocelyne Paulhus's insight:

The Harry Potter Alliance was founded with this quote from J.K Rowling in mind “We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to Imagine Better.” – J.K. Rowling 


They work together to raise awareness of key social justice issues in the word, such a building literacy rates,  using the shared loved of the Harry Potter series to create a community of activism. I think that this would be a interesting project to involve students who also share a love of Harry Potter.
