c e l e b r a t e d
the premiere
Learning in
the Classroom,
the instructional
DVD that showcases students and
teachers at Samuel W. Tucker
Elementary turning their stories into
short films.
The EAT program has become widely
known across the Washington area
and beyond as an effective, practical
guide for teachers wishing to inte-
grate arts learning. Creative Learning
takes you through the filmmaking
process, from developing a story to
editing the final movie. Educators and
students share their insights about
what makes the project work and what
they gained from the experience.
The red carpet event was received
enthusiastically by the fifth grade
students, their teachers and parents.
Tucker principal Patrick McClintock-
Comeaux was on hand to express his
support for the program.
"I thought the film was fantastic! I've
worked before in student theater and
in student curriculum based theater,"
he said, "and the way the EAT program
puts it together with video and getting
everybody involved is outstanding."
"It's amazing! It's really a great program."
Exclaims Jennifer Holden, Vice-
President of the Tucker Parent
Teacher Association.
EAT uses theatre and filmmaking as a
teaching tool in the classroom.
Creative Learning chronicles the EAT
team's work in Tucker and shows the
process through which students created
short imaginative films, with topics
aligned with the class curriculum.
Throughout the video, educators and
students share their insights about what
makes the project work and what they
gained from the experience.
Special features of this DVD include
chapters on tools and strategies for
implementing the EAT project, as well
as additional teacher comments.
Stay tuned for updates on distribution
plans for the DVD. Contact Andrea Ellis

See you at the Shortie Festival!
To some they are a lost generation --
The Way Forward documents the lives
of three teenaged girls growing up in
post-apartheid South Africa. To succeed
in the face of significant obstacles, each
must reconcile her dreams for the future
with her current circumstances. In the
end, only one will fully achieve her goals.
Teachers have found The Way Forward
to be a valuable tool that encourages
conversation on topics as diverse as
alcoholism, the AIDS/HIV epidemic,
education, life choices, parental respon-
sibility, poverty, and teen pregnancy.
In the teens' victories and setbacks,
American audiences discover lessons
for their own lives.
Londi, Sisonke and Tamarah
are coming of age in South Africa.
