Share and discuss Zimbardo’s talk with friends, classmates, teachers, and parents. Experiment with different audience groupings and see if the discussion generates different reactions and observations. Try screening the talk with a girls-only and/or boys-only audience; an adults-only audience (teachers and/or parents); and an intergenerational audience. To facilitate the discussion(s), excerpt some of the existing viewer commentary on TED.com: http://blog.ted.com/2011/08/05/talk-and-survey-are-we-seeing-the-demise-of-guys-philip-zimbardo-on-ted-com/http://www.ted.com/conversations/4851/are_boys_brains_being_digita.html http://www.ted.com/conversations/4901/is_the_demise_of_guys_a_harb.html http://www.ted.com/conversations/559/can_we_make_public_elementary.html

Many schools and communities have established special programs for girls, in order to build self-esteem, encourage their healthy physical and emotional development, and/or boost their achievement in ‘traditionally male’ subjects like math and science. Do similar opportunities exist for boys in your community? If not, what do you think might be useful and appealing? Do some research and present your findings to school administrators and/or the leaders of community organizations that might sponsor such an effort.
