So some 5th graders, in collaboration with the Saturday Light Brigade, made a really cute psa for bike pittsburgh in their “cool to care” program.
Please oh please oh please take 30 seconds and go to the site and leave a comment for the kids to let them know you listened!
Did anybody else think it sounded a little complicated for 5th graders?
“pursue timely implementation of the city bike plan”
“as users of the transportation system”
np, that is great
@ pierce – yeah, we were laughing at that. i mean they coulda chose anything, but it also made us realize that we need to test anything that we want to publish against a 5th grader trying to read it.
Don’t feel too badly. A disquieting percentage of adults can’t read smoothly from printed text, either.
@Pierce IB kids could do it easily. For most out of school and IB tests/exams they have been told to “dumb their language” or some people who check results would not understand it.
Commented, hope it helps.
They may have had help with the script, but even the president gets that! Great job by the young gentlemen.
