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”

@ 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. :)

They may have had help with the script, but even the president gets that! Great job by the young gentlemen.
