The Teacher Shortage Problem: Making the Grade at P.S. 25 (58:16)
Facing a severe teacher shortfall for the 2000-2001 academic year, New York City scrambled to staff its worst-performing school district by crash-training hundreds of eager teaching fellows. In this program, NewsHour correspondent John Merrow presents five reports that track several of these brand-new teachers from opening day to summer recess as they learn the ropes at P.S. 25, in Brooklyn. Balancing their idealistic views of teaching are hard-won insights that demonstrate a powerful determination to overcome discouragement brought on by long hours, inadequate resources, and classroom discipline problems.
Making a Difference: Great Teachers, Part 1 (28:44)
This documentary focuses on three teachers who have made a positive impact—academically or personally—on their students’ lives. Selected as a result of an essay contest that asked students to write about the teacher who had most challenged and inspired them, the teachers are shown at work in the classroom, doing what they excel at: teaching and making a difference.
Teaching Diverse Learners Series (30:52)
A diverse learning environment benefits everyone, but it can put overwhelming pressure on an unprepared teacher. Produced by Illinois State University’s renowned College of Education and School of Communication, this two-part series empowers educators using real-world teaching methods—enabling them to overcome the obstacles and maximize the rewards of a diverse learning atmosphere.
Unequal Education (40:23)
This program with Bill Moyers compares the everyday experiences of two New York City middle school students and contrasts political rhetoric with the reality of American schooling. A profile of the two students and their different schools points out the inequalities of our current system and how disproportionate funding affects the quality of education. The program also features advocates for educational reform, who debate what the Democratic and Republican parties can do to improve schools.
Teaching with Technology Series (2:07:24)
Technology has put a whole new spin on education, redefining the role of teachers and reshaping the classroom learning experience. Drawing on dozens of case studies, this outstanding six-part series captures the excitement of integrating the Internet and other technologies into the curriculum while presenting real-world ways in which they are being applied.
