Those of you who remember the 1970s will remember the Sesame Street segment, “One of These Kids Is Doing His Own Thing.” In it, the screen would be divided into four boxes. In three of the boxes the enclosed children would be, say, jumping–maybe one would be jumping rope, another doing jumping jacks, and maybe another just hopping around. In the fourth box, a child might be reading or drawing. The viewer’s job was to discern which child was different, which child was, perhaps, marching to the beat of his or her own drum.
