American Teacher

As the debate over the state of America's public school system rages on, one thing everyone agrees on is the need for great teachers. Yet, while research proves that teachers are the most important school-based factor in a child's future success, America's teachers are so woefully underpaid that almost two thirds must divide their time between a second job in order to make a living. Chronicling the stories of five teachers in different areas of the country, American Teacher reveals the frustrating realities of today's educators, the difficulty of attracting talented new teachers, and why so many of our best teachers feel forced to leave the profession altogether. But this wake-up call to our system's failings also looks at possibilities for reform. Can we re-value teaching in the United States and turn it into a prestigious, financially attractive and desirable profession? With almost half of American teachers leaving the field in the next ten years, now is the time to find out.

How to Say No and Really Mean It

Saying NO and sticking to it is one of the most difficult challenges in a teen’s world. In the high peer pressure environment of a high school party, it’s almost impossible for many teens to do what they know is right. This information-packed video opens on just such a party. Five teens face situations that test their ability to say NO in a convincing manner.

  • Tom is pressuring Jose to drink alcohol.
  • Kristen is being pressured by her boyfriend to have sex.
  • Jordan is trying to convince Andrea to cheat on the chemistry final.
  • Shabelle and Meetra are planning a mean trick to bully another girl.
  • Kyle, who has been drinking, is offering Segi a ride home.

The program walks students through 5 skills that enable these teens to say no effectively:

  1. analyzing the situation
  2. considering consequences
  3. looking at alternatives
  4. recognizing influences
  5. using assertiveness skills.

Each answer is fully explained to ensure that students understand the importance of obeying basic safety rules. Your students, "the viewers," are encouraged to play along to test their knowledge! After viewing this program, students will think before they act, evaluate a situation as safe or unsafe, and recognize what makes someone a "stranger." From using matches to eating berries off a bush, from taking someone else's medicine to walking over to a car to give a stranger directions, youngsters will have the skills they need to stay safe.

Who cares about Kelsey?

Kelsey Carroll has one goal--to graduate from high school--and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. 'Who Cares About Kelsey?' is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive 'problem student' to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age and play important roles in an education revolution that's about empowering--not overpowering--our most emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth.
