Classroom footage with voice-over narration seemingly intended for education students. Rural setting is an avenue for examples in tying classroom studies to community concerns. Emphasizes “common problems” and “individual differences,” and that “children need lots of opportunities to think for themselves,” tying farm-community examples to a demonstrated lesson plan.
