PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These are known as the "Energizer of the Day" in my high school classroom. As an English teacher, I relish the opportunity to connect deep discussion, analysis, debate, and synthesis into my daily classroom atmosphere.

Included in this 127 slide presentation are various quotes, questions, song lyrics, and pictures that were used to generate about 5-15 minutes of discussion at the start of every class. Sometimes I would permit students to lead the discussion. Other times I called on raised hands. Other times I used random reporter popsicle sticks.

I had students write these in a section for Energizers in their notebooks, which I would check bi-weekly. I would assign participation points, one for each entry.

Some of these quotes were submitted by students themselves, some were compiled by me. Some are greatly controversial and others are more straightforward. This smattering of thoughts come from older sources such as proverbs and Socrates, modern celebrities like Beyonce and Lil' Wayne, iconic figures such as Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa, and bands such as Passenger and Mumford and Sons.

Links are provided for all songs, though some of the songs are not school appropriate in their entirety. The links are provided for background knowledge for the teacher. The quotes included on the slide are school appropriate.

Topics include:
*Death
*Religion
*Aging
*Self-help
*Sacrifice
*Stereotypes
*Bravery
*Friendship
*Love
*Family
*School
*Art
*Culture

and a plethora more!

Understand that this product has the potential to spark controversial topics that require mature and intentional moderation.
Please enjoy!
