Awesome pearl jam connection
I teach at an alternative school for children with serious behavior problems and emotional disturbances. Today a new student started in my classroom because he was expelled from his school. The students are wanded and searched and we take their cell phones and iPods and put them a box. I give them their iPods in class, if they are behaving to use during independent work time. So while this young man was typing his writing journal I hear him singing do do do do do do do do to the melody of Black. I tap him on his shoulder and he takes his headphones off and I say-Black. He goes yay. I am like do you like Pearl Jam? He says they are awesome. I say, they Are one of my favorite bands. Then forget the writing journal we obsessively talked about PJ for 15 minutes. He is 16 and has seen them in concert once. What a great way to get to know a new student! I love it when I am with young people and they like good music.
