Summary
Shows how four teachers from across the country are working to revamp their teaching and their schools, against a variety of obstacles that might thwart their efforts. A sixth grade science teacher in East Tennessee demonstrates the project approach to learning and use of the Internet; a bilingual (Spanish-English) kindergarten teacher in Boston demonstrates how she fosters experimentation and verbal expression in her classroom; an eighth grade science teacher at an inner-city school demonstrates how she helps students make connections between the science classroom and the real world, and an elementary science teacher in Flagstaff, Arizona, demonstrates how she adjusts a field trip to an archaeological site to include the interests of students from several ethnic backgrounds.
