What does it take to be a teacher? TEACH, a documentary by Academy
Award Winner Davis Guggenheim, looks into this question. Guggenheim, who has directed other
documentaries including Waiting for Superman and An Inconvenient Truth shows viewers the inspiring work that
teachers do and how they make a difference in students’ lives. In partnership with the U.S. Department of
Education and other organizations, TEACH aims to highlight teachers and
encourages others to join the field of teaching.
The documentary is hosted by Queen Latifah and follows four
public school teachers throughout their 2013 school year. The documentary shows a year in the life of these
teachers and illustrates the unconventional and collaborative methods they use
to help their students learn. Each teacher’s story shows what it takes to
master the craft of teaching. Throughout the documentary viewers see the ups
and downs that come with being a teacher, but also the methods these teachers
use to help their students succeed.
TEACH was a
project envisioned by Guggenheim after he completed his Waiting for Superman documentary which highlighted the failures of
America’s public education system. While
filming Waiting for Superman, Guggenheim
saw good teachers exploring innovative approaches in their teaching. He felt compelled to create a documentary
which showcased what teachers do to bring attention to the fact that our
country should invest in good teachers and practices, and also work hard to
recruit the best and brightest into teaching. In a video interview on www.takepart.com/teach, Guggenheim says, “I thought, if I made a TV show
that showed people what great teaching is, that people might see that as a way
to reinvest in our schools and reinvest in what works. And what works is great
Guggenheim brought TEACH
to life in partnership with organizations such as the U.S. Department of
Education, the American Federation of Teachers, Teach for America, the National
Education Association, United Negro College Fund, National Network of State Teachers
of the Year, and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Many companies including Microsoft, NewSchools
Venture Fund, and others also supported the initiative.
According to the TEACH website, half of America’s teachers
will be eligible to retire over the next decade and they hope that the
initiative will help transform K-12 education and encourage and empower the best and brightest students to enter the teaching field. TEACH strives to bring to light the great work of teachers and to help people
see it as a top career choice.
aired on CBS in September last year. School of Education students or anyone interested in seeing TEACH
