In Our Feeds: Ron Weasley, high school principals, and Pixar
By Morgan on November 4th, 2011
Each Friday, we share a handful of links we found interesting, provocative, funny — or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Enjoy!
We’ll start out with a super fun, funny one: want to see what happens when parents tell kids they’ve taken away their Halloween candy? Of course you do. Check it out and prepare to giggle (and then feel a little guilty for the kids’ trauma!)
Speaking of kids’ books, US Weekly lists 25 celebrities who’ve written them. They include some of our favorites, like My Brother Charlie by Holly Robinson Peete and Girls Hold Up This World by Jada Pinkett Smith!
There was a lot of Harry Potter talk this week, as reports surfaced that JK Rowling almost killed off Ron Weasley, and then more info about the potential paths she almost took in the books wa revealed. These are must-read links for all the Potter fans!
In the arts space, here’s a great interview with the chief creative officer of Pixar, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. (Can you believe it?!) Fans of “Toy Story” and the myriad of other memorable movies they’ve created should check it out.
As I write this blog, I’m eating breakfast at my desk. So this link about whether breakfast can replace family dinner time really intrigued me. How many of you eat dinner with your family every night? If not, it might be a nice alternative.
Here at Scholastic, we focus on teachers quite a bit…so what about the principals? Here’s a “day in the life” of one in a Queens high school. What do you think — is the job what you expected?
And finally, take a look at a school in New Hampshire that’s been deemed “failing” — including the reasons why, what it must do, and how it’s affecting the teachers and students.
