Video: “The Boy Who Learned to Fly” Is A Delightful Animation About Usain Bolt (Plus Accompanying Lesson)

“The Boy Who Learned To Fly” is a great video animation about Usain Bolt and Kieran Donaghy has, as he always does, created another excellent lesson to accompany it for English Language Learners.

You can see his lesson at the Film English blog, where you can find many other high-quality ones, as well.

I’m adding this info to The Best Resources On The 2016 Rio Olympics.

Video: John Oliver Takes On Charter Schools

John Oliver just eviscerated charter schools last night on his HBO Show in an eighteen-minute commentary.

I believe even most charter school advocates would agree that he had his facts right. They’d probably also say he focused on only the worst charter school examples and neglected to talk about more positive ones. That may be true but, as far as I’m concerned, charter schools in general have done considerable damage to our public school system and they get considerable positive media attention – they can afford some negative P.R. for a change.

As anyone who has watched John Oliver knows, he uses a classroom inappropriate word now and then in the segment, though they are all “beeped” out, except for one use of “sh__tty” near the end.

I’m adding this to The Best Posts & Articles Analyzing Charter Schools.
