A New Day for Learning

The seven documentary films included on this DVD provide examples of how student learning can be improved during and beyond the school day, taking advantage of after-school or out-of-school periods, including afternoons, evenings, weekends, and summers. The first segment, which provides an overview of model programs and the importance of rethinking how students spend time learning, is followed by six in-depth case studies of programs that feature best practices. These videos, featuring more than sixty minutes of content, are intended to inspire reform and spark conversation.
