This Week in Education Blogger Alexander Russo included a brief (4:13) video excerpt from This American Life. It will make perfect sense to those of you familiar with the 5th grade mindset.
This from Alexander.
"Once in a while, strange little crazes start in schools, often making adults crazy in the process. Showing his roots as an education reporter, This American Life's Ira Glass included a segment about a video-making craze that overtook one set of kids in the show's video premier, which aired last week. Not surprisingly, the craze turned out badly, and the grownups had to step in. It's shown here for free: Video: embedded. I think you can also watch the full segment online here."
