From a correspondent in Georgia:
My 5th grader’s assignment for Social Studies last week was to create a “Fakebook” profile page for one of the important people from the Civil War. Complete with a potential friends list and what their friends would have posted to their Facebook wall…he didn’t get a lot out of it, as you can imagine.
What is it with some teachers? Of all the things in the world that kids do NOT need, more time with Facebook would be near the top of the list.
