I thought I'd share this recently rediscovered relic from my early days as a teacher. Back in the late 1970's I started teaching a high school "Media Studies" class. (Pittsford-Sutherland HS, Rochester NY). It was one semester, social studies elective that examined the impact of media on society (mainly TV - and all very McLuhan).

Duane Sherwood and I were inspired by early TV pioneer, Ernie Kovacs to shoot this 1 minute video. I used it after my first few introductory lessons. That day, instead of their teacher, my students found a TV / recorder in front of the class. The sign instructed them to "watch this video."

The shot took hours to set up. I attribute my bad acting to sitting sideways and trying to keep a straight face. It's just too bad I wore red flannel and khakis that day....
