Rob on the Road Meets an Award-Winning EGUSD Teacher!

If you’ve been looking for a rationale and the inspiration for bringing filmmaking into the core curriculum, we recommend listening to KVIE’s Rob on the Road’s recent interview with Jim Bentley, 6th grade teacher at Foulks Ranch Elementary School.  Jim was honored at last Spring’s SEVAs as the 2012 recipient of the Allen Hinderstein Award, in recognition of his dedication, passion, and vision for teaching.

Congratulations, Jim!

To learn more about the many ways Jim integrates media literacy and digital citizenship into the school day, you can follow him on Mr. Bentley’s Classroom Blog.
