Back in 2006, most elementary school teachers weren't using film/video for much more than "rainy day recess." Our team wanted them to see it as a dynamic, engaging resource for 21st century learners.
The National Geographic Education Foundation allowed us to develop hands-on activities for film/video and videotape teachers using the curriculum in local classrooms. Outside evaluators confirmed the effectiveness of the package.

COAST SALISH DOCUMENTARIES
From Ed Carriere:
Katie Jennings is an extraordinary storyteller. Her involvement in a project brings impeccable attention to detail, and the highest professional standards for media quality. Above all, her keen abilities as a listener and a visionary help her to weave the ideas of those whom she works with into something beautiful and relevant.
From Vi Hilbert:
It is my pleasure to voice support and praise for anything that Katie works with. Her wisdom, her artistic eyes make her choices a joy to see and hear.
