Why teach technology? 21st Century Literacy As society and technology change, so does literacy.
Why teach technology? 21st Century Literacy The twenty-first century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies.

I most appreciate the 1st amendment. Not many countries around the world have free speech, press and religion. Many people in other countries could get thrown in prison or get executed if they spoke freely. In America we could petition against the president and not get shot. I think that U.S. citizens definitely take advantage of the amendments. Some don’t realize how lucky they are to live in this country. And that’s pretty much all it is, is luck. People in poor countries are unlucky. They didn’t do anything to be in a cruel, poor country. That’s why we shouldn’t take for granted what we have because for all we know if there was a turn in history that could be us in that unlucky situation.
According to Did You Know? The top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004. We are currently preparing kids for jobs that do not exist and technologies that haven’t been invented in order to solve problems we haven’t yet encountered. Karl Fisch, Scott McLeod, and Jeff Brenman
I’m so– glad that I didn’t get republican. But I also think that this test is really sexist. They called me a Disadvantaged Democrat just because I supported the poor.I am so *MAD*! Guess what they said. They said that because I want social services for the poor I must be a woman and I must be poor too. And that I get paid lower than 20,000 thousand a year and that I must be a part of a worker’s union. So what they are really saying is that if you have a well-balanced life and are wealthy, you can’t support the poor.
I disagree where K***** stands, she thinks that helping the poor is about giving away money. !!!THAT IS NOT WHAT IT IS ABOUT!!!! Yes I think that it is wonderful to help people, but most people are just leaching off of healthcare. It should not be about supporting people financially, but about putting in place a system that can teach people how to work for their money. Instead of just giving them money which just weakens the economy…
Multiple models for emerging writers
Me: “What makes this strong writing?” Student: “Well, the writer uses specific examples to develop her argument. Plus there is emotion in her voice. You can tell she is really upset about the issue.” Student 2: “I didn’t know you could put in your feelings. I thought you just had to answer the question.” Me: “Well, in this example, is the author answering the question?” Class: “Yes.” Me: “Does this give any of you ideas about how you might be able to further elaborate on your answers?” Class: “Yes.” Me: “Pull out your notebooks and feel free to add to your initial response.”
