Excellent message in this video, the kids really enjoyed it. David Robinson is an excellent role model for all young people, not just basketball players.

David Robinson was very open and candid about himself in this video. By stating what he believed and sticking by what he believed was very impressive to the teachers and students.

The transition from elementary school to middle school is difficult for most students. Seeing someone who they recognize and look up to talking about taking responsibility and standing up for what is right helps to encourage students and give them the confidence to do just that.

This was the best received video I've shown from izzit because it used a recognized spokesperson and a group of students who were peer age/experience as my class. These are topics the students really do want to talk about, but rarely get the opportunity in a regular classroom setting. Thanks.

David Robinson is a role model that my students truly identified with. As a teacher of several troubled students, viewing the video with them and being able to discuss it and issues affecting them personally, made for an unbelievably tender teaching moment. I plan to continue to use the video with future classes that I teach (that is if my colleagues ever return it!).
