Host a Screening
We encourage you to host a screening and discussion of TEACH. Our hope is that the film will spark dialogue and action in communities across the country to ensure that there is a great teacher in every American classroom.
About the Film
We all have had a teacher who's shaped us, inspired us, even scared us, and whom we can credit with having empowered us to become who we are today. To look at education in America, Davis Guggenheim brings us his third documentary "TEACH," which asks the question, What does it take to be a teacher? Offering a rare glimpse inside four public school classrooms, Guggenheim invites us to follow the struggles and triumphs of America's education system through the eyes, minds, and hearts of its most essential resource: teachers. Intense and emotional, this year-in-the-life of four public school teachers illustrates how tenacity, innovation, and a passion drives these educators as they navigate the ups and downs of the 2013 school year.
