Film Screening and Discussion: "Mitchell 20"
by Amy Laleman
Mitchell 20
The School of Education will host a screening of the film Mitchell 20 on February 5, at 6 p.m. in the Lund Auditorium, followed by a panel discussion featuring several SOE faculty members

Mitchell 20 is the story of 20 elementary teachers in one of Phoenix's most impoverished neighborhoods, who set out on a journey towards improving the quality of their teaching. 

The film follows the Mitchell 20 over three years as they attempted National Board Certification, a grueling program that is the most accurate measure of teacher effectiveness in relation to student achievement.

Narrated by Edward James Olmos, Mitchell 20 was named Best Educational Documentary at the 2012 New York International Film Festival. 

The event is free and open to the public. 
Time: Tuesday, February 5, 6:00 PM
Location: Lund Auditorium, Performing Arts Center
