Editorial Reviews

Ruby Payne

"One of the fastest ways to provide an understanding is through a story or a visual. Film clips do both. This book is an invaluable aid to any staff developer who wants to captivate an audience and teach at the same time. "

Arthur L. Costa
"Teachers, staff developers, and presenters who are eager to make their productions more engaging, vibrant, and memorable, will find this collection invaluable. Because our metaphorical minds learn through finding patterns, relationships and analogies, the use of film clips to illuminate such elusive but enduring values as persistence, courage, empathy, creativity, and hope can accelerate their meanings more powerfully than any lecture, definition, or description."
Sara L. Gjerdrum
"You can only bring forth that which you can imagine, and this book allows people to imagine together through the power of film. By seeing different ways of behaving, interacting, responding, and being, people consider new ways of being for themselves and how this could change their world."
Jennifer York-Barr
"This exceptionally well-organized, user-friendly resource is sure to be among the most well used in the tool kit of every teacher, principal, and staff developer. Without a doubt, the video clips will elicit compelling learning conversations in faculty meetings, workshops, coursework, and all other professional settings. This resource will be invaluable in my own teaching."
