"Animal School" (video on how children learn)

Today was my final day of new teacher orientation in the district I accepted a position with over the summer, and our assistant superintendent shared this video with us during a session on lesson planning:



It's five minutes long, no spoken word, but it uses sort of a parable to illustrate the pitfalls we can run into in modern education. I think homeschoolers will probable nod their heads in agreement and public/private school advocates will as well. It might be very optimistic of me to believe this, but I think we all want the same thing in the end – to help our children ("our" being used loosely in the case of teachers!) learn and grow and become fantastic adults.

Anyway, enjoy the video; I did! (Actually, I wept like a dork in the middle of a room full of my new colleagues. But I enjoyed it none the less. )
