Lessons from the Real World: Social Issues and Student Involvement (Enhanced DVD)
Lessons from the Real World: Social Issues and Student Involvement (ISBN:978-1-62102-085-1) is a powerful and important film focusing on the idea that reading, math and other primary educational courses can inspire students to become more invested in learning about these lessons by creating a true desire to learn. The traditional academic lesson plans of force feeding students subject matter that students do not relate to has grown more ineffective with every passing year. This enhanced DVD (55 minutes) comes on the heels of its predecessor film, Democracy Left Behind: NCLB and Civic Education, and investigates community-based learning in the K-12 educational arena. The premise centers on looking more closely at educational settings based upon action-oriented lessons and promotes the idea of students taking work outside the four walls of the classroom. Lessons don't work unless they work for the student, and teaching the students to work in order to learn is the goal when the day is done. These truly are lessons from the real world.
