"To inspire them to realize more and more of their capacities for living meaningful lives. Because there certainly is meaning to life."

On the Langston Hughes Video
I really liked what Carriann did as far as the video itself, but I felt like she did not give Hughes enough credit. She said his name at the beginning, but failed to recognize from what anthology she found the piece. I don't know if this was covered in the Copyright videos, but it seems common sense that at the end, she acknowledge where she found the poem, and what year it was published.
With that said, I would probably have my students explore ways to visualize the texts we're studying in class, but make sure we cite it properly.
