[TIPS] Another writing prompt idea for sr high

Wes Fryer pointed us to this article in the latest National Geographic. Don't read this if your stomach rolls over when hearing about gross injustice and flagrant corruption and the plight of helpless people. But, DO read it and encourage your sr high students to read it and blog about their reactions to it. They'll want to just vent, I'm sure, but you'll help them focus and find links and try to make sense of it all, won't you? Be sure to check out the Sights and Sounds link, too.
The web is RICH with articles and videos that make excellent writing prompts, don't you think?
