 Minds of Our Own

These three one-hour nationally broadcast programs are designed to make science teachers aware of students' preconceptions. An extension of the award-winning video, A Private Universe, Minds of Our Own shows that many of the things we assume about how children learn are simply not true, and that the education system we have built is based largely on a series of myths. These documentary programs take a hard look at how human beings learn new ideas and show why educators are leading a charge to change the way we run our nation's schools.

Grade Levels: K12
