Teenage mothers have many challenges.

Two of the big ones are staying in school and giving their babies the care they need. San Diego’s Lindsay School is celebrating 20 years of helping teen moms finish high school. This year, the school also started giving the babies a good start on the educational ladder.

Itzel and Ashley, who didn’t want their last names used, are both 18 and graduating from the Lindsay School. Itzel wants to be a lawyer. She said she “likes defending people, and I don’t like injustice.” Ashley hopes to become a school counselor. so she’s majoring in psychology.

Both of their faces light up when they talk about their children. Itzel’s baby girl is 9 months old, and Ashley loves to laugh about her 2-year-old son being a handful.

Despite Reputation, Video Games Have Educational Value

“Video games have a reputation for rotting young minds with their emphasis on weapons, violence, conflict and death. But some teachers and game designers say certain video games can have real educational value.

“Well-done games are literature,” said Orange County-based video-game designer Liz Fiacco. “They’re amazing, and it’s just a different kind of a way to experience something.”

This new kind of literature can simulate whole new environments that students should be learning from, according to Bernie Dodge, professor of learning design and technology at San Diego State University.”

Owning Enthusiasm: SDSU Wants to Trademark ‘I Believe’ Cheer

San Diego State University is trying to trademark a cheer.

It’s commonly referred to as the “I Believe” cheer. At Aztec games, one fan screams “I” and the crowd repeats it; then “I believe,” adding one word at a time through “I believe that we will win!” It ends with an ear-piercing climax when the whole crowd shrieks, “Win!”

Aztec basketball fans have become famous for using the cheer in recent seasons. The student section, known as “The Show,” will have hundreds of fans jumping and chanting the cheer in unison during games. They are waves of Aztec passion, like breakers to the shore.

The synchronized, undulating mob screams the mantra to both inspire their team and freak out the opposition.

It has been known to work.
