Former vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden has taken some criticism lately for his "overly familiar" methods of physical contact. In an attempt to confront this, Biden recorded a brief video in which he explains that he's always been this way and means nothing by it. What do your students think of his response?
If you show the video below in class, some students might be reluctant to give their opinion so here's a suggestion: use a tool like Vsynchronize to get your students to chat about the video anonymously as it plays in front of class. This tool was recently recommended by the folks at Practical Ed Tech. Here's the Biden video and below is a brief video showing how to put this video into Vsynchronize and share the link with your students to get the conversation going.
