Teachable Moment: Boxing, Typography, and Illiteracy. Wild! And, lovely.

I love anything that approaches literacy in a new way, but I must say that when I first opened this video, even I was surprised. In it, a Ukrainian boxer named Wladimir Klitschko is fighting illiteracy through typography, art, and boxing. It’s worth a look, and it would spark some really interesting conversation in classes, especially with younger kids.
