I show this video at the beginning of most of my trainings when introducing people to CI for the first time. Traditional teachers who see this video usually always ask me immediately – “What level is this???” When I tell them that this is November of Spanish 1 (after only 3 1/2 months of Spanish), I get all sorts of reactions – from shock, to smiles, to tears. This video is my “hook” when trying to shine light on the power of CI. To make things better – this was from a struggling inner city school that was in the “red” for years – meaning it was at risk to be taken over or closed. These are the “hard” kids who others are quick to give up on. Not only do they love learning, they are damn good at it.
