Saw this in my Twitter stream this morning – and LOVE it. Way to teach kids about re-purposing and re-mixing with respect!
This teacher’s kids want to use pop music they love for a project. Their teacher wants them to do so legally and with respect, so he’s trying to contact the artist directly. To get her attention (the artist is Taylor Swift), he’s asking all his Twitter PLN to re-tweet his open letter to Taylor Swift to her Twitter account, so her mentions column will be filled with the RT of his letter. If you Tweet, please copy and paste this into Twitter:

As part of the Epic Romeo and Juliet Project, my students need to create a soundtrack for the production.
Many of them want to use a couple of Taylor Swift Songs. I told them we can only use them if we have permission. I need your help to ask.
I've written an open letter to Ms. Swift asking permission and I need your help tweeting her so she will read it.
My goal is to fill her Mention column with so many tweets she will read the letter and agree to let them use the songs.
I really want to surprise my students with a yes from Taylor Swift. So, here we go. Please RT the next tweet!
