Documentaries


Here I collect the best documentaries on school and education in one place: 

A Science of Teaching
A Science of Teaching (2015) offers a comprehensive guide for teachers, educators, and anyone else interested in human behavior on how learning occurs at a biological and environmental level. What shapes our behavior? How do our behaviors become reinforced? What are some useful techniques to help shape human behavior towards acquiring new skills and behaviours? How do we measure human behavior and what is the science behind teaching and learning?

Free to Learn: A Radical Experiment in Education (2006) is documentary by Jeff Root and Bhawin Suchak. This  70 minute documentary offers a “fly on the wall” perspective of the daily happenings at The Free School in Albany, New York. Like many of today’s radical and democratic schools, The Free School expects children to decide for themselves how to spend their days.

Why Do These Kids Love School? (1990) is a documentary film directed by filmmaker, Dorothy Fadiman, which examines an independent school, Peninsula School, followed by visits to eight public schools around the country (pre-school through high school) all of which have innovative programs.
