Ted film

Again, what a great motivating video.
Key points:

Have the guts to confuse the students!

Students' questions are the seeds of new learning !

Curiosity to ask hard questions
Embrace and not fear trial and error
Intense reflection

Embrace the mess - learning is ugly!

Embrace why!  Keep the kids engaged.

This connect with the student led discussions in the class - let the kids decide which discussions to join.  It may not work great the first time but embrace the mess.  I think this will be a great idea for literature circles.  Edmoto and twitter will be two pieces of technology that will help keep units engaging.
