Episode Description
Wednesday, Jun 13, 2018 - 1:00 AM    Communities as Classrooms, follows producer Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Lessons From the Real World, Barefoot College) as he introduces a profound education initiative at four schools in El Salvador in the Fall of 2015. While schools in El Salvador largely resemble those in the United States, with test driven classes, fragmented curriculum and traditional lecture style teaching techniques, largely divorced from real world problems, Bob has K-12 students build an interdisciplinary curriculum around solving problems in their surrounding communities - motivated by the students themselves deciding what those problems are. Communities as Classrooms traces the process week to week over a two month period as students evolve from disinterested bystanders in their classroom experiences, to active members of a newly thriving democracy.
