So Captain America: The Winter Solider celebrated a record-breaking $96.2 million opening for the month of April. (Haven’t seen it, so don’t spoil it for me!)
But what I have seen is co-star Anthony Mackie (a.k.a. The Falcon a.k.a. A Younger Will Smith) making his memorable appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon a few days ago.
All teachers should see this clip, too, and take away some of the actor’s enthusiasm.
Watch Anthony Mackie egg on Bill O’Reilly at the 1:00-minute mark, and then look for the main event around 3:25, in which the actor explodes with energetic commentary of his own movie clip.
Try something like this the next time you show a video in your classroom.
Maybe tone it down a notch, so your students can actually hear important information. And don’t curse.
But don’t lose that sky-high excitement!
(Sorry. Couldn’t resist.)
