|"Look, here's a cool|
source on Twatter!"
BUT, for the final research essay, I have some requirements they don't like. One of them is to use the web, but for the REQUIRED web articles, they must get their information from both a government website, and a university-sponsored website.
Eat me, kids. That's what I fucking want from you. It's what I told you I wanted. I made myself VERY clear. You can use your easy to find .orgs up the ass as ADDITIONAL, OPTIONAL web articles, as long as you write a paragraph explanation of what kind of organization runs the site, what their stated purpose is, and where they get their funding.
I just cannot believe how far some of these otherwise demonstrably intelligent critical thinkers will go to try to argue that there is NO NO NO government agency at ALL that has useful information on, say CIVIL FUCKING RIGHTS. And NO university on the planet has ever published anything on that topic either, not online. Not no way, not no how.
I am just kind of speechless. I don't even feel like pointing them in the right direction. I feel like telling them to just take the 10 point per unused required source deduction (just check the rubric, suckers) and fuck off.
I will sit on this, put it aside, meditate, and drink some flavored ice tea (and I am winking at YOU, Proffie Galore).
And get back to these Einsteins tomorrow.
