The video promoted very strong emotional writing from my students last year and that is one of the hardest things for my special education kiddos to do.

This was a wonderful video for my students. The segment on Agricultural Subsidies was especially interesting as many of my students are from farming families. They were ready to discuss for days after watching this video. Thank you for your awesome additions to the classroom.
