Media: Website Collects Ridiculous Textbook Excerpts

image from 24.media.tumblr.comI got this from Lori Crouch at EWA.  She got it from some guy at the Chronicle.  

It's called "Thanks, Textbooks: A COLLECTION OF THE WORLD'S FINEST ACADEMIC WRITING. (UPDATED EVERY MONDAY)."

Basically, ridiculous word problems, images, and captions from textbook land. You can find it here.

Just think:  Some publishing company got paid to sell this to a school.  And some teacher probably got paid to come up with the copy.

I lost it at the image captioned “children are easily persuaded.” I hope it’s taken out of context. I really, really hope.
