Last week I had the pleasure of talking to three classes of tenth graders in Texas. They’ve been studying the hero’s journey this year and recently read “Lord of the Flies”. I got to talk to them about the Stanford Prison Experiment and my take on heroism. This was all done via a Skype video chat thanks to the tech-savvy, top teacher, Christian Long.
The students and I have since continued the conversation on the class blog. There have been some truly great comments with some insights that really made me think. If you’d like a snapshot of the kind of depth of thought tenth graders are capable of, check it out in the link below.
