  • Movie Night sponsored by the Educational Studies Department
    • Join the Educational Studies Department for a showing of Accidental Hero- Room 408. A suffering public school finds new hope and inspiration in one man named Tommie Lindsey, an Oakland, California, resident with the dream of reaching the area's youth. Through teaching his students the sport of "forensics," Lindsey shows his class the importance of public speaking and ignites their hunger for the thrill of academic success. Come for the movie.... stay for the popcorn!

  • Movie Night sponsored by the Educational Studies Department
    • Join the Educational Studies Department for a showing of The Great Debaters. Marshall, Texas, described by James Farmer, Jr. as "the last city to surrender after the Civil War," is home to Wiley College, where, in 1935-36, inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and his clandestine work as a union organizer, Professor Melvin Tolson coaches the debate team to a nearly-undefeated season that sees the first debate between U.S. students from white and African American colleges and ends with an invitation to face Harvard University's national champions. The team of four, which includes a female student and a very young James Farmer, is tested in a crucible heated by Jim Crow, sexism, a lynch mob, an arrest and near riot, a love affair, jealousy, and a national radio audience. Starring Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker. Come for the movie.... stay for the popcorn!

  • Educuational Studies Movie Night
    • Join the Educational Studies Department for a showing of The Class. François and his fellow teachers prepare for a new year at a high school in a tough neighborhood. Armed with the best intentions, they brace themselves to not let discouragement stop them from trying to give the best education to their students. Cultures and attitudes often clash in the classroom, a microcosm of contemporary France. As amusing and inspiring as the teenage students can be, their difficult behavior can still jeopardize any teacher’s enthusiasm for the low-paying job. François insists on an atmosphere of respect and diligence. Neither stuffy nor severe, his extravagant frankness often takes the students by surprise. But his classroom ethics are put to the test when his students begin to challenge his methods… Come for the movie.... stay for the popcorn!

  • Educational Studies Movie Night
    • Join the Educational Studies Department for a showing of Blackboard Jungle. This provocative portrait of juvenile delinquency in a 1950s inner-city high school was based on the best-selling novel by Evan Hunter. Groundbreaking in its gritty realism and its use of rock & roll on the soundtrack, BLACKBOARD JUNGLE paved the way for such realistic and tough adolescent pictures as WEST SIDE STORY and REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. The atmospheric tale of a teacher's harrowing experience in the New York City school system stars Glenn Ford as Richard Dadier, an idealistic teacher assigned to a new school located in one of the poorest and ethnically diverse city neighborhoods. Dadier's idealism fades as he struggles to make a difference to his indifferent students. Darkly ominous cinematography highlights the street world of the desperate delinquents as they carouse, smoke, and steal after school. The film features smoldering performances by a young Sidney Poitier and Vic Morrow as tough-as-nails rebels fighting over the role of leader in Dadier's classroom. This innovative and ultimately uplifting portrayal of a generation at odds with the world served as a seminal portrait of the darker side of the 1950s; however, it was laced with controversy as well, as it was withdrawn from the 1955 Venice Film Festival for showing an unflattering view of American high school life. Come for the movie.... stay for the popcorn!

  • Public Lecture and Book Signing by University of Toronto Assistant Professor Lance McCready '90
    • "Black Masculinities in Urban Education" Lance McCready teaches "School & Society" for the Secondary Teacher Education Program and “Approaches to Urban Education” in the new Urban Education M.Ed. Cohort at the University of Toronto. His most recent book is Making Space for Diverse Masculinities (Adolescent Cultures, School and Society) published by Peter Lang Publishers. Lance's research seeks to develop and promote “intersectional” perspectives on urban education that look at the ways race, class, gender, and sexuality have an impact on teaching and learning in inner-city schools. In particular, he is interested in the way intersectional perspectives can help teachers, students, and policymakers better understand disparities in achievement, participation, and discipline. His most recent publications focus on "making space" for diverse masculinities in urban education and how the experiences of gay and gender non-conforming Black male students reframe the “troubles” Black males face in urban high schools. This event is co-sponsored by the educational studies department, the African and African American Studies department, the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship, and the Gender and Sexuality Center. A brief book signing will follow. Copies of Professor McCready's most recent book will be available for purchase at the event as well as prior to the event in the Carleton Bookstore.

  • CENTRAL TOURING THEATER PRESENTS 32nd annual Urban Youth Theater Performance
    • Saint Paul Public School's, Central Touring Theater is proud to present, “American Dream, Where Is It?”, an original play created by the urban youth ensemble. This year’s play, “American Dream, Where Is It?”, utilizes hip-hop, spoken word, dance, and theater to express youth voice. Set in a classroom of a caring social studies teacher, the young people in the class reveal problems that get in the way of their ability to focus on their studies. They ask heartfelt questions such as what is the American Dream and how to use education to create a safer and more just America. Stories focus on resisting peer pressure, surviving street violence and growing up without a father. The stories also touch on social justice issues such as immigration and GLBT rights, homelessness and other issues that affect them as they try to get through their daily lives in school. As the play ends they make the same statement in their original song that ends their play Don’t Give Up Its Okay It Get Better! Sponsored by the Educational Studies Department and American Studies Department
