What Educators Are Saying
- “From a teacher’s point of view, I couldn’t have asked for a more engaging process. I’ve never seen a class so motivated and inspired…The conversations about the films and the subjects didn’t stop when they left my classroom. They continued throughout each student’s life and crossed over into other classes. Seeing this impact is absolutely inspiring as an educator. It helped strengthen their studentship skills, broaden their perspectives, enlightened them, and educated them in various subjects. Collaborating with SIMA helped inspire my students to become responsible, global citizens who are now motivated to get involved.”Faculty and Chair of the Film and Digital Media Department, New Roads School
- “My class is very social justice based – so having films that play to that makes themes come alive for students. I want my students to feel compelled to make the world a better place… and I think that they won’t know what to fix until they examine our world today through different perspectives.”Humanities 8th Grade Teacher
