Video of the Week: "Asking Nicely"

I love the random stuff that finds its way to YouTube. This weekend I was introduced to Conversations with My Two-Year-Old, which documents all too-real conversations parents have with their kids. The twist: the children are acted out by grown men. 

"Asking Nicely" has me thinking this morning about how we teach our students different behaviors and concepts.

  • Does the "repeat after me" method work?
  • How do we respond when a student "doesn't get it"?
  • If people are making money off of YouTube videos like this, what's to say our students won't become YouTube stars?
