Edu-Jargon Drinking Game

The title is shamelessly stolen from Michelle Malkin's post, because it's the most apt at describing this bit of fun from Eduwonk. The gist of it is, every time you hear some piece of educratic jargon, you take a drink of your favorite whatever.

A few examples:
Paradigm
Incentivize
Authentic learning
Developmentally-appropriate
Reminds me of a class I took on Media and Culture as an undergrad, and what a jargony barf-fest it was. The two words I heard most:
Hegemony
Marginalized
The drinking game would have made that class a lot more tolerable. Drink up before you throw up!

(BTW, unrelated trivium: the textbook for this class had a whole chapter devoted to proving, logically, how capitalism is evil, because Ayn Rand's female characters like rough sex. Wrap your noodle around that one.)
