Good is Great!

While digging around for video-clips for my Film Studies class next semester, I ran across the GOOD Magazine channel on Youtube, which ultimately lead to their online magazine.

A "collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward," Good Magazine provides articles, interactive infographics, videos and more on a broad variety of topics. The few I've looked at ranged from videos on the high cost of cheap food and the western bias against Al-Jazeera English to this disturbing infographic on the worst/best tapwater in the U.S.

These are all wonderfully visual tools to engage students in thinking outside the mainstream media box, and well worth the time spent perusing them to find material useful to your own particular curriculum.

For your enjoyment, view this excellent parody of Cool Hand Luke (made for Water Day) that I plan to use with my Film Studies students. (Link is to the original)
