What Poor Child Is This? [electronic resource]: Poverty and America's Children

If poverty is a serpent, child poverty is its venom. And with an estimated 12 million American children suffering from economic hardship, even the wealthiest society on Earth cannot escape the poisonous effects of poverty. This program examines child poverty in the U.S.: its causes, its agents, and its human impact. Citing facts and findings that contradict the American ethos of upward mobility, the film lays bare the sad reality of what financial deprivation is doing to the nation's young people: eroding family bonds, decreasing literacy, increasing health and addiction risks, raising the specter of mental illness, and putting children disturbingly close to criminal influences. Lack of school readiness (preparation for kindergarten) and poor academic achievement are also examined as [...]

Work It Out! [electronic resource]: Strategies for Resolving Conflict

Last year's Spring Fling at Jefferson High School was a total disaster-and this year's student committee doesn't want it to happen again! But can the group put aside the past and work together constructively to create a successful dance? This video uses scenario analysis to model four key conflict resolution strategies: taking the person out of the problem; focusing on issues, not egos; being objective; and creating win-win solutions. Show your students that differences are a part of who we are-and that while we may not get along with each other all the time, we do have to find positive ways to work out our disagreements.

The Movement [electronic resource]: Saving Children at Risk on the Streets of Rio de Janeiro

But the problems of the favelas (slums) have plagued Brazil for decades. This program directed by Sandra Beltrao makes it clear that more than just a few people will be needed to solve the nation's deep-rooted problems.
