Melvin is at it again, having interviewed another person about technology in schools. Today’s contestant was "Jack Daniels," the oldest person that we have interviewed on The Blurb so far. He talks about what sixth grade was like in the early 1940s.
My favorite part of the interview is when Jack talks about action figures and how he learned about history. He also mentions blackboards, typewriters, and film reels. Know what those are? His teacher seems awesome, but some of the punishments were cruel back then!
Listen to the full interview here:
So what do you think about school in the 1940s? Leave us a comment to share your thinking and join us again soon on The Blurb.
