These videos were created as part of an ITEL project (CLED Flipped Grammar: Jennifer Lubkin & Andrew Screen). The purpose of the project is to explore what type of impact flipping specific units of a grammar class has on student learning.

These videos, as well others that were created for this class, are designed to serve as instructional video clips to enhance grammar instruction in text books or in class. One of the main goals of the project is to reduce the teacher talking time in class by "flipping" the class. By flipping, the explanations are provided through video and watched by students for homework, and the class time then allows more time for language practice.

What is infant circumcision? Why is the practice common in U.S. hospitals and not in other countries? What does it remove and how does that affect the child? Does scientific data suggest that circumcision has benefits? What are the potential complications? How does it affect sexuality? Is it a medical procedure or a social surgery? If it's unnecessary surgery, what about contemporary bioethics principles?

Through both a review of scientific literature and a discussion of the human cost of the procedure, this presentation explores these questions from the perspectives of the child, the adult survivor, the parent, and the practitioner.
