Summary
This classic video is an outstanding resource for elementary educators that shows them how to nourish and develop the genius in very young children. Based upon his best-selling book, "Awakening Genius in the Classroom" (published by ASCD), this video features Dr. Thomas Armstrong as he explores the history associated with genius, and debunks the narrow but widely held belief that genius is solely a function of performing well above average in tasks that require academic skills. Armstrong argues that there is genius in every child, which parents and teachers need to discover and awaken. He identifies negative environmental influences that often prevent the genius from revealing itself in children, and discusses factors that awaken and nurture genius, and enhance its growth and development.
Viewers will observe Dr. Armstrong's theory being put into practice in schools, and in particular how the Montessori approach nurtures the genius in young children. The executive director of Association Montessori International/USA helps to profile schools that take a creative and unconventional approach to developing students' gifts and raising student achievement and performance, and shares easily implemented strategies with viewers.

Summary
This film explores the challenges that children of Caribbean immigrant parents experience as they embrace their cultural heritage while assimilating into American society. Interspersing immigration facts with interviews with first and second generation Haitian, Belizean, Guyanese and Trinidadian Americans, it discusses contributions that Caribbean Americans make to U.S. society. Second generation children often come into conflict with their parents as they become Americanized and break away from their parents' traditions, while parents may become disillusioned with the American Dream and experience discrimination in their host communities. Included is a discussion of Caribbean and African-American relations.
