Educator Toolkit


Educator Toolkit

We are delighted to provide you full access to the film’s accompanying educational resources, all made possible by generous audience outreach and engagement grants.

In the coming months, we will also make available an online activity for students, as well as an online feedback survey for faculty and administrators.  Your participation will be an essential part of the process in demonstrating to our funders the full value of their support and will help us continue to share the film and its educational resources with other educators across the country.
