The program on learning recalled for me the wonderful learning environment of my 1950's neighborhood in the East Falls portion of Philadelphia. We role played extended stories from those 50's TV shows like "I love Lucy" and "Ozzie and Harriet" in the front patios and back yards of our red brick row house street. Westerns and Space shows and even Robin Hood's adventures were played out in a space at the end of the street called "The dump." The dump was a space where the dirt piled-up from the digging of the foundations of our homes formed a ridge of dry land for a Western stage or the edge of a crater in Outer Space. Can children get this kind of learning experience now?
