So if you’ve been watching Idea Channel for a while you probably know about Mr. Monfre’s class. Mr. Monfre is a high school math teacher who shows Idea Channel to his discussion period and then posts a comment based on the discussion they had every week.
Mr. Monfre explains what it’s like to show Idea Channel in the class:
I was hooked on the episodes and so I thought, alright, pop culture…academics…meshed together – let’s see what the kids think. And so I showed them an episode and we wrote up a really cool comment and then the next week you mentioned us in the video. They were hooked I knew at that moment and we just started watching them every week.
