Description

RE:Thinking, a new documentary by PhotoSynthesis Productions, takes us into three innovative American public schools, where students are learning how to think instead of what to think.

_______________________________________

The future of our society depends on the creativity and competence of the young people who are currently making their way through our education system.


RE:Thinking offers a new hope for public education, by exploring three American public schools over the course of three years, each of which creates a culture of intellectual life in classrooms that respects the whole child as a learner and an adult-in-training.

These schools successfully meet public education standards while embracing a culture that values thinking over memorizing information.

RE:Thinking shows the powerful, positive change that occurs when teachers and students are empowered to be active participants in building knowledge.
