Docs Rock

First post – hi everybody!

This video was made by my friend Susana with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation a couple of years ago. I thought it would be interesting to share it with the EdLab team as it features a program that may be interesting for us for the New Learning Times project.

San Pedro High School in Los Angeles has one of the largest drop-out rates in the area. Docs Rock, a unique program that exposes students to the art form of documentary filmmaking, tries to fight the negative statistics by preparing students for college and employment in a creative way.
