Student-teacher in Tennessee dismissed over Black History Month assignment on slavery
A Tennessee school district dismissed a student-teacher after the young educator taught a Black History Month lesson to fourth-graders, asking them to recite graphic, violent methods to control slaves, officials said Thursday.
The student-teacher's lesson plan, given to youngsters at Waverly Belmont Elementary School in Nashville, was centered around the notorious — and perhaps apocryphal — 1712 speech by slave owner William Lynch, "The Making of a Slave," officials said.
After reading the material in which Lynch purportedly advocated for physical and psychological torture of slaves, students were asked, "To keep their slaves subservient, plantation owners should" with a series of blank bullet points for youngsters to fill in.
"A student-teacher was dismissed and asked not to return to Waverly-Belmont as a result of teaching material that was not age appropriate or within the scope of sequence for the 4th grade class," according to a statement by Metro Nashville Public Schools.

Here's Why You Should Be Watching A Scary Movie During Your Next Workout
There are days my motivation to work out is minimal at best, and as the weather gets colder, those days seem to become more and more frequent. Yes, the moment the temperature starts to drop, and the leaves even suggest turning color, I'd really rather just curl up on the couch with a bowl of chips and a horror movie to begin my very enthusiastic countdown to Halloween. But luckily for me, I've discovered a new motivation that might help me get in the mood to move when I'm just not feelin' it. It turns out that watching scary movies while exercising can actually pack a serious punch when it comes to your aerobic exercise.
Believe it or not, this is not as much of a stretch as it sounds. There has been actual research done that supports the idea that watching a horror film has around the same aerobic and metabolic impact as taking a 30-minute walk.
