And I blame Coach Sanders. Anyway, this is interesting:

What Highschoolers Don’t Know

But isn’t it just Invisible Man without the “the”? (question 30, page 4 in case you don’t want to read through the whole thing like I did)

Also, I don’t recall learning about Job in high school. Or ever, really, and I went to an Episcopal school for 6 years.

This is also interesting…

Crying Wolf:
Why Did It Take So Long for a Far-Fetched Holocaust Memoir to Be Debunked?

…especially in view of that movie being out here right now. I wish they’d published this last week so I could’ve given it to my students for their discussion groups. Help me out here, Slate!
