Cómo sacar partido de los recursos que ofrece Netflix para las clases de Lengua y Literatura en secundaria.

En el hilo os dejo algunas ideas...

#Élite aporta esa atmósfera envolvente de misterio que tanto gusta a los adolescentes.
Sobre el plano real del instituto, pueden situar la escena de un crimen, imaginar culpables y elaborar una noticia con las 6 preguntas básicas del periodismo
#SexEducation es fresca y tiene una temática atractiva por razones obvias.
En pequeños grupos, pueden exponer sus dudas sobre sexo, preparar un cuestionario, investigar sobre dichos temas y, a modo de entrevista, recrear un consultorio juvenil como en la serie.

The Konmari method and why people are jerks, a thread:
#KonMari #MariKondo #Tokimeki
“Spark Joy” = Tokimeki which is a feeling of excitement, palpitation, interest and a litany of things including “joy”. If all of your books give you tokimeki then keep them all. Konmari method is not about randomly tossing stuff away, it’s about valuing what you have.
Mari Kondo has a deep attachment to Shinto and was an attending maiden for a shrine for 5 years. A lot of the philosophies in her tidying at Shinto one’s, particularly animism.

A friend asked me why I seemed so invested in #MarieKondo / #KonMari. It's not really because I'm a fan of her methodology.

Part of it is that I'm a slightly obsessive factchecker & get annoyed at assumptions made without research.

But mostly it's my sensitivity to xenophobia.
Americans (and Westerners more generally) have dominated how people think about space, clutter, "minimalism". Get rid of as much stuff as possible! Just buy new things if you miss them! Get all the organising tools! DO AS I SAY OR YOU FAIL!

KonMari is none of these things.
KonMari is about mindfulness and active consent with your things. Before you even start any cleaning, you think about what you want out of your space and life - and use that to guide your process. You wait till you see what you have to decide if you really need more things.

1) There's one fact about #MarieKondo that informs everything I read about her.

She spent five years as a Shinto priestess.

Let's break that down.
2) The Japanese religion of Shinto involves communing and appeasing the kami.

Kami are... Kinda but not totally spirits/gods?

Seriously, @neilhimself is a genius just for making a culturally understandable translation of Princess Mononoke.
3) So here's where kami break western traditions:

Shinto involves countless kami... and you may pray or appease them EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEY'RE NAME.

Be some spirits are nameless.

They're not D & D gods.

EVERYTHING could have a spirit.
