We’ll tackle some problems facing our planet that were surfaced in the first two episodes, and help educators create engineering design lessons that will encourage students to think about solutions to future problems. Hosted by PBS Digital Innovator All-Stars Sharon Clark, Sebastian Byers and Aaron Maurer, the episode will focus on hands-on classroom projects that support scientific inquiry, human-centered problem solving and “future-ready” skills. We’ll introduce two projects--a landfill project and a solar energy project--that educators can use in their own classrooms to help students think about their own relationships to our planet, and how they might change their behaviors to help plan for a sustainable future. PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one hour virtual professional learning event.

RSVP to watch Bedlam from the comfort and safety of your home. Watch and engage with people from across the country live on OVEE! ABOUT THE FILM: To get to the bottom of the current mental health crisis in the U.S., psychiatrist and documentarian Kenneth Paul Rosenberg M.D. chronicles the personal, poignant stories of those suffering from serious mental illness, including his own family, to bring to light to this epidemic and possible solutions. Shot over the course of five years, Bedlam takes viewers inside Los Angeles County’s overwhelmed and vastly under-resourced psych ER, a nearby jail warehousing thousands of psychiatric patients, and the homes — and homeless encampments — of people affected by severe mental illness, where silence and shame often worsen the suffering. Rosenberg follows the lives of three patients in particular who find themselves with a chronic lack of institutional support while weaving in his own story of how the system failed his late sister, Merle, and her battle with schizophrenia. Featuring interviews with experts, activists, individuals living with a mental illness, and their families, Bedlam builds on historical footage and commentary related to mental health, exploring the rise of this issue on a national scale in the mid- and late 20th century.

Add to Calendar05/05/2020 12:30:00 pm05/05/2020 01:30:00 pmAmerica/Los_AngelesDear Georgina Join the Emmy winning team behind DAWNLAND or a special digital screening of FIRST LIGHT and DEAR GEORGINA in this special workshop for educators. For centuries, the United States government has taken Native American children away from their tribes, devastating parents and denying children their traditions, culture, and identity. First Light documents these practices from the 1800s to today and tells the story of an unprecedented experiment in truth-telling and healing for Wabanaki people and child welfare workers in Maine. As revealed in FIRST LIGHT in 2015 the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission concluded that Native people in Maine continue to be targets of "cultural genocide." In DEAR GEORGINA a Passamaquoddy elder journeys into an unclear past to better understand herself and her cultural heritage. Join the filmmaker Adam Mazo, learning director Mishy Lesser, Sarah Shear and scholar Dina Gilio-Whitaker (Colville Confederated Tribes) for a discussion in historical and intergenerational trauma and take away tools for use in your classroom.
