“Children Full Of Life” Documentary on YouTube

This documentary, a piece entitled “Children Full Of Life” takes place in a fourth grade class in Kanazawa, Japan.  The teacher of these students, Kanamori Toshiro teaches his students to bond, and encourages them to write “notebook letters”.  These letters are an insight to the mind of a 10 year-old child.

The letters are always very well done, and insightful, something that is telling of Kanamori-sensei’s teachings.  I thought this wonderfully done documentary was far too touching to keep buried in the confines of YouTube!

    This is a dream! If only every school was as enlightened as this one. There is one school mentioned here in the documentary The Death of Respect, where the head teacher threw away government guidelines on teaching when they were fruitless and developed her own system which put the school, mostly full of children living below the poverty line amongst the top schools in the UK!
