We think about student engagement all the time. In fact, the declining state of student engagement in the American K-12 system is why we even started Noble Impact. The ability to engage students at a high level is very challenging but also very critical to the success of students and teachers. So, how do we do it? How do we engage students while engaging teachers in the education process?
“Most Likely To Succeed,” a new documentary that Education Week named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced,” aims to answer these questions. We’re honored and excited to announce that we’re bringing the film to Arkansas for the first time ever.
We’ll screen the film in two locations in November — Fort Smith and Little Rock — and both screenings will be followed by a special Q&A session with the Executive Director of the film, Ted Dintersmith.
The Fort Smith screening, set for Wednesday, November 18th at 7:30 p.m. at the UAFS Windgate Art & Design Theater, will be be our kickoff event. RSVP for the Fort Smith screening here.
The Little Rock screening, set for the following day on Thursday, November 19th at 7 p.m. at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater, will be presented in partnership with the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, as part of the Arkansas Times Film Series. RSVP for the Little Rock screening here.
Defining success in the 21st Century is ever-changing, ambiguous, and uncertain. We hope this film evokes meaning and spurs conversation on how we make education better… together. If you believe that education is important, we hope to see you there! Check out the film trailer below to get a taste of what we’ll see and discuss.
