This teacher dancing away with his students is the best thing you'll see in the New Year
Educator Ron Clark has found a new way to teach as well as learn from his students. Here's what he is doing
A viral video has Ron Clark, teacher and founder of the Ron Clark Academy dancing away with his students to the beat of rapper DLOW’s “Bet You Can’t Do It Like Me Challenge.” He is also a Global Teacher Prize finalist.
An innovative educator, Clark started his academy in order to 'make teaching as fun as possible.'
Huffington Post first covered the story behind the video, where Clark was requested by his students to dance with them, a request he happily accepted.
When asked, Clark mentioned that he knew that it would mean a lot to them if they taught him how to do it. The students and Clark decided to meet at school on January 3, 2016, and filmed the dance session that went on for over two hours and posted the results online.
Vocations such as music and art have time and again been used in the classroom to engage students.
