New episode of Alex Ruggieri's One on One

November 3, 2009: My guest is Craig Lindvahl, Educator/Filmmaker. I want to tell you all that this was one of the most interesting stories that I have ever had the privelege of bringing to you on the show. Craig is not only a very dedicated and gifted teacher, he is also doing something that is really amazing with the young people in his class. He is teaching them about life by teaching them about business in the real and immediate context of actual businesses. This pragmatic approach to teaching assures learning and retention for students in ways that wrote memorization and conceptual theory does not even approach. As I say in the interview Craig's style of teaching is akin to telling someone about what a beach is by having them put there toes in the sand-not just show them a picture post card of the tropics. I hope you take time to view his interview. I firmly belive that if we had a program like his for all our kids in high schools everywhere our society and communities would benefit tremendously. WATCH NOW!
