Tomorrow, Wed. 9/9, we will be showing a video of the President's remarks to America's school children in social studies. I encourage you to watch the video/broadcast yourself first and make a decision about whether you want your child to view the speech. I will attempt to link the video to my blog, but for now, here is a link to the written remarks. Please read and/or watch before making your decision. We will have a short class discussion, but will not be participating in the suggested curriculum which has been controversial.
President Obama's Remarks in written form
Here is the video link to watch the speech. I will be skipping part of the introduction, to focus on the President's message. YouTube - President Obama's Message to American Students
