class RATED MLRV

I splash the below powerpoint up on the first day of every class. I patterned it after the TV ratings.

This is my effort to coax the students into a mature response when we discuss media matters.  Gay marriage amendments should not bring about giggles nor should a congressmen texting photos of his penis. (okay, maybe a few giggles allowed there).  But, as I reflect on my teaching methods, I think I use this slide as an excuse for when I swear so much in class…  “I told you there would be mature language.”
