According the the Good News Grapevine, I was told that one high school utilizes unitedstreaming videos in a unique manner. They seemed to be having far too many sexual harassment cases last year. In a proactive move, Kathy, the assistant principal, searched unitedstreaming for videos on sexual harassment and sure enough she found these five great video segments. Any student accused of sexual harassment is automatically set to ISS (in school suspension). Why waste this teachable moment? The students have to watch each of these videos, write an expository essay on the impact it had and submit their essays for review. If the essays are accepted, they are released from ISS. 2nd offenders are rare. If the essays are not accepted, they get to review the videos again, write a persuasive essay the second time for a chance to change their ways.
