The other day I posted about how I’ve been using short and compelling video clips to break up our long last few days of the school year. In my search I found a link to this five part documentary about a class of children in Japan.
I’m honestly not sure how my class will respond to these, but as a teacher I find this immensely compelling. I would love to hear your comments. I am in awe of this teacher’s ability to build such an empathetic community of learners. The threads of Japanese culture and values are very clear. I wonder how some of these learning activities would play out in a U.S. school?
