He wears the clothes of a dead prisoner, timeworn and never washed. His authentic self is masked and he is doomed. Each teacher, unless alert to possibilities of what might be, can become lost in a moral morass of policy and pedagogy, blindly donning the cast offs of a system that has never worked and is failing faster and more spectacularly than ever before. We are sold a line that the clothes just need starch. We need new clothes. We need them now. Immorality and deception. Arrogance and greed. Misc

Vince Pantalone: Great Teacher (6:11) -- Steve Gauvry: Great Teacher (6:43) -- Jo Anne Kreeger: Great Teacher (6:03) -- WITF and WGAL Partnership (2:23)This program focuses on three instructors singled out as "great teachers. One teacher's infectious enthusiasm, another's solid dedication, and a third's sense of humor foster self-esteem in even the most difficult students. This is an interesting study of three very different educational "styles" that produce the same positive educational results.12 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

The Right choice? charter schools and voucher systems [electronic resource (video)] / by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584; University of Notre Dame(SAGE)1667923;
Freedom of Choice in Education (1:34) -- Problems in American Schools (3:54) -- History of the Voucher Systems (5:34) -- Pros and Cons of Voucher Programs (4:13) -- Charter Schools (3:54) -- Competition in Education (3:52) -- Further Challenges for Education (2:01)In theory, America's public schools provide an equal-opportunity education for children of all walks of life. Unfortunately, in practice it does not always work out that way. For many families, charter schools and voucher systems are providing what they feel are the keys to better education. This program looks at these alternatives at the Countryside Charter School and elsewhere, demonstrating how they allow concerned parents the option to bypass public schools in favor of institutions with stronger programs and better reputations.13 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Why are so many parents opting to educate their children themselves? Are they wary of violence in public schools? Do they lack confidence in what they perceive as a one-size-fits-all approach to learning? Or are they intent on adding a fourth R, religion, to the traditional three? This program examines the homeschooling phenomenon with Chris Klicka, director of the Center for Home Schooling; two pairs of parent-teachers; and two students, currently in college, who were homeschooled.13 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Purpose of Parent-Teacher Conferences (2:56) -- Preparation for a Parent-Teacher Conference (3:34) -- Physical Setting for Parent-Teacher Conference (2:22) -- Academic Performance Discussion (3:11) -- Discussion of Child's Study Habits (2:19) -- Difficult Discussions with Parents (2:24) -- Discussion of Children's Social Behavior (4:27) -- Teacher Conference with Limited English-Speaking Parent (1:00) -- Good and Bad News in Parent-Teacher Conferences (1:57) -- Children's Emotional Issues in Classroom Settings (3:02) -- What Happens After the Parent-Teacher Conference? (3:01)To run a successful parent-teacher conference, educators need a wide range of skills at their disposal - and a healthy supply of confidence. This video builds both, providing solutions to the problems and frustrations that many teachers face when interacting with parents and guardians. The program explores step-by-step preparation strategies - including specific knowledge and data to have at hand, the best ways to introduce topics of concern and personalized feedback, and the communication and conflict-resolution skills needed to work effectively with parents. In-depth role-playing illustrates positive and negative ways in which a conference might play out and details the most compelling methods for conveying a student's academic, social, and emotional progress. Interviews with teachers and parents reinforce essential concepts and highlight real-world challenges and rewards surrounding this vital part of education. A workbook designed especially for Professional Development workshop coordinators - containing video viewing instructions, a post-viewing discussion guide, and skill-building exercises - is also included.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Charles Best: An Idealist (3:16) -- Teaching: Challenges and Rewards (5:39) -- Inspiring Teachers and Students (6:23) -- Expanding Horizons Through Education (3:50)Charles Best is a Bronx high school teacher with a big idea: DonorsChoose. In this ABC News program, Best talks with correspondent Michel Martin about his Web site where carefully reviewed curricular activities proposed by New York City public school teachers are posted for civic-minded citizens to fund. The beauty of this nonprofit business model is its low overhead: the teachers handle assessing the needs and designing the activities, while the donors play the role of treasurer, deciding for themselves which activities to fund.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
