Kiran Bir Sethi teaching us life's most valuable lesson
A very inspiring video. Kiran takes teaching out of the confines of the classroom into the city outside. The students are given am amazing opportunity to empathize. They spend the whole day making incence sticks and then they are given the opportunity to go out into the busy streets to sell them.
I wonder if many schools will allow that! Some parents might object as math and grammar lessons would not be covered if the kids spent the whole day making incence sticks! The school may be hesistant to send students out into the streets incase anything happened.And yet The Riverside School went right ahead...
