Teachers can see "kid's-eye-view" in "Where the Wild Things Are"

Every teacher should see the movie "Where the Wild Things Are" because it will help educators understand how children view the world, writes high-school English teacher Dan Brown in this blog post. In the movie, a teacher tells 9-year-old Max that the sun will die. This news has a tremendous effect on Max and demonstrates the need for emotional support in schools and from teachers, not just methodical instruction, Brown writes.
