Angry Dad shoots daughter's laptop

Posted on | February 13, 2012 | 2 Comments

At 8m 23s, this one is a bit longer than I like the YouTube clips I use in class to be (I go for under 2 minutes, if possible). (You could just skip to the action!)

But for discussion (possibly, eventually, as a piece of written work), both with teens and adults, I just know that "Is this guy a good Dad?" is going to "work" (i.e. have my learners wanting to say a lot).

Didn't have time to finish the discussion in class? Want to research (webquest) more? Edmodo is fantastic for that!

Interesting background to the story on Mashable.

    You're right, Don, and most people (everyone?) would say that. What I'm saying is that by asking that question you could kick-start an animated discussion.

    I've not tried it out yet in class, but I will .-) !
