Given the temptations and dangers of texting and driving to everyone, including young drivers, we decided to show the entire Upper School student body a segment of the documentary on the subject, From One Second to the Next, created by the famous film director, Werner Herzog. Our plan is to show it on Thursday, October 24 to the 10th and 11th grades in small groups and to follow the viewing with a discussion. We will show it to the seniors next week and to the 9th grade in the spring in Seminar as part of the risk-taking unit.
Here is the link to an NPR story about the film. The film itself is linked to the story. We hope you all will take the time to watch it and talk about it with your children.
