IT'S NOT ABOUT GRIT: TRAUMA, INEQUITY, AND THE POWER OF TRANSFORMATIVE TEACHING

These video clips, curated from award-winning Educational Video Center (EVC) documentaries, correspond to chapters in It’s Not About Grit: Trauma, Inequity, and the Power of Transformative Teaching by Steven Goodman. They ground the book’s analysis of the sociopolitical systems undermining our students’ achievement in students’ own personal stories of struggle, resilience, and agency. Use these clips and the book to spark engaging discussion, creative activities, and action research in your college courses, professional development workshops, and high school classes. You can purchase the full versions of these student documentaries in the EVC store. Access the video guide here for sample teaching strategies and activities.
