hey Firefly in class
Friday, May 26, 2006

yes I keep posting and typing and such. Profound boredom has set in and I just had the best idea. I think I could come up with a way to use some Firefly episodes in my English classes when we are learning narrative structure and I was wondering if anyone ( mostly looking for parent opinions) would object if their junior high age ( that's 12-15 years old ) child watched a Firefly episode in class. I would probable stick to the train robbery as it has the best narrative structure and the least inappropriate comments. So what do you think?>

i dont think it would be a big deal. im 14 and all my friends are madly in love with the show now. (thanks to me) i agree though, you might want to send slips home.

OK sounds like with consent forms I could teach a unit on diversity in language and structure of a narrative using firefly. I believe that I shall spend my summer working up the masters and lesson plans:)

We had permission slips to get signed before they showed us 'schindlers list'. (Age 14). Maybe you could do something similar for your classes.

If I had kids, I'd let them watch. Hell, we watched Dances with Wolves in 4th grade (parental consent forms were sent home) and in 6th grade we watched Glory.
