WAY WE SEE IT: What Makes a Teacher Worth Listening To?
All too often, schools are highlighted for their shortcomings and failures. For this program, student filmmakers produced short documentaries about what they think makes a great teacher. We meet two teachers who transfer their knowledge into interactive teaching techniques to create a successful learning experience. And a French teacher shows how to grab students' attention. Also shows teachers who use art, music and dance to make poetry come alive. Finally, we see how a video center helps a gang member, at risk of dropping out of school, turn around to achieve academic and creative success.
