Will you guys please trim your emails! It is really hard to find the
next comment when the email is 10 pages long. Thanks.

I think any teacher that avoids playing is really missing the whole
point of play. It is natures tool to help youngsters learn. It is fun
and the fastest way to learn. Computer games can abuse this but in a
school with a good teacher there is nothing better! What better way to
teach a teenager than to ask him to animate or program is favorite
game character or game and then teach him how?
