Teacher of the Year Documentary Film Screening to be held Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 3:30 in the MCC Theater
Please join us!
On behalf of the College Readiness Council, MCC is excited to announce our upcoming Film Screening of the award-winning documentary Teacher of the Year. This thought-provoking film asks audiences to question the dominant image of the teacher as a "Hollywood hero" and instead consider the enormous dedication of real teachers at work. Watch the all-too-typical trials of one teacher's life in a suburban North Carolina classroom as the film raises questions about faculty workload, the many misperceptions of teacher efficacy, and the political climate of teaching professionals in 2018.
Documentary Film Screening: Teacher of the Year
3:30-5:30pm on Tuesday, June 5
MCC's Theater and North Atrium
Discussion with coffee, tea, and desserts to follow
Andrew Simmons from The Atlantic writes that "Teacher of the Year offers an authentic portrait of a teacher's life in the context of an academic appraisal of Hollywood's familiar model: that of the heroic teacher performer, usually an untrained outsider who, encountering the resistance of skeptical peers, gets inspiring results."
