Build a Better World - Lunchtime Learning
South Brunswick Public Library, Wednesday, June 28 at 1:30pm
Spend a year in the life of one of America's most innovative classrooms as part of the Summer Reading theme Build a Better World.
Today we will show the 2013 critically acclaimed documentary, If You Build It, a offers a compelling and hopeful vision for a new kind of classroom in which students learn the tools to design their own futures. The film runs 87 minutes - a little longer than the Lunchtime Learning films that we usually show at this time.
From the director of WORDPLAY and I.O.U.S.A. comes a captivating look at a radically innovative approach to education. IF YOU BUILD IT follows designer-activists Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie County, the poorest in North Carolina, where they work with local high school students to help transform both their community and their lives. Living on credit and grant money and fighting a change-resistant school board, Pilloton and Miller lead their students through a year-long, full-scale design and build project that does much more than just teach basic construction skills: it shows ten teenagers the power of design-thinking to re-invent not just their town but their own sense of what's possible.
The Lunchtime Learning Notable Film Series will be held on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 12:30 p.m. in Meeting Room A/B unless otherwise noted in this calendar.
Mark your calendars and join us as we expand our knowledge and open our minds with compelling and entertaining documentaries or lectures.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown-bag lunch. Coffee, tea and dessert will be served, courtesy of the Friends of the South Brunswick Library.
Submit your suggestions for other film series to outreach@sbpl.info (added from Eventkeeper)
