Tennessee's Metro Nashville Public Schools and Vanderbilt University recently collaborated to enroll fifth- and sixth-grade students in a reading academy for learners who are advanced. The program, offered on Saturdays, is intended to help encourage students to read and allow them to think critically about texts. In one exercise, students were asked to read a Ray Bradbury story, "There Will Come Soft Rains," before creating and editing one-minute videos retelling the story about what follows the disappearance of humanity.
