Product Description:
Laziness and shortcuts are a problem that plague the education system in many ways. It's not that teachers and students don't want to engage with each other: it's just that teachers have so many students to work with and their students have so many other things on their mind. As a result, both try to find ways to streamline the process in ways that simply doesn't work. Thankfully, many teachers are doing something about this problem.

One of these teachers is Rafe Esquith, a fifth-grade teacher who works in central Los Angeles teaching primarily low-income Mexican and Korean children. In this DVD, you will learn how Esquith uses Shakespeare to help teach his students about the importance of hard work and dedication to a project. By the end of the eyar, his class eventually learn how to perform Hamlet and experience a wide range of activities.

The most interesting thing about Esquith's teaching method is that it doesn't neglect the importance of standardized tests. His students do almost uniformly well in these tests, helping his school receive more funding and accolades from the state. An exploration of his award-winning methods is an illuminating journey that teachers and students alike deserve to take, especially as they watch his students visit places like Washington DC and meet cool Holllywood actors.

Any teacher who has struggled to reach their students or who needs a little help finding a powerful teaching method should check out this DVD and others like it. It can serve as a poweful and stirring example of the importance of dedication and hard work.
