Do YOU know a student like this?

If you've not seen Avatar (in 3D) then you have REALLY missed something special. Watch for it to appear at your nearest iMax theater and GO SEE IT!

But, watch this video of James Cameron at TED.  Listen to how he talks about his life growing up, and how he behaved in school. Do you know a student who seems lost in his own world? What do you do with that? As he says, "...your imagination creating a reality." Do you yell at him/her to get them to focus on your content ("For once!") Or, do you find the time to talk with him/her later to find out what the interest is? I wish I could say I did the latter.

Listen to his advice on life. I think this is an EXCELLENT video to show to your students. This is a fantastic writing prompt.

Watch this video. You won't regret it.
