11. What teacher spent all that time creating that document about ISIS,

or did a teacher just download it from a news source?

ISIS came up in my 6th grade classroom last week. We weren't doing current events, but ancient history. The Fertile Crescent, standard 6th grade curriculum...which touches upon the 3 major branches of modern religion that sprang from there. "Branches" was the key to the conversation; they'd been hearing "ISIS" in the news, and I just pointed out that Islam, like their own faith, has many branches small and large.

We spent some time talking about religious wars then and now, and then went back to the focus of our lesson: the various tribes/civilizations and what they accomplished.
