I've been spending some time learning about fracking. The video below is certainly not the most unbiased documentary, but it does outline some of the concerns in which I would like more answers. It seems like using these types of video could launch student interest into topics of future importance, and we should be viewing more engaging intellectual video in the classroom, but I know as an adult it is easy to get sucked into the emotional pitch of these works, and it is even easier for our students. How can we best show these engaging pieces that hook our students without charging to the left or the right on a topic or issue? We have a great responsibility to hook on the left or right, drag to the middle and allow students to drift to a new place based on their growth.
