[Xmca-l] Re: Teaching in social context



Mike,

No tv in the classrooms.  Broward County has extended the teaching day...the students are in class from 7:30-3:30...then they have remedial reading from 3:30-5:15.  Technically, the school has been an F school for three years.  It is due to be shut down this year.

Seems like the grumpy quality of the narrative is being picked up on, but
hard to tell.

*The Secret Garden* is antiquarian by American standards, having appeared
in the latter part of the 1900's. I note there is a modern TV series about
it.

Paul - Would it be permissible to incorporate some of the TV, so the kids
get a richer interpretive object and mix it with reading?
