Educating Peter by Thomas C Goodwin( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Peter Gwasdauskis, a child with Down syndrome, was mainstreamed into a public school, he had a lot to learn about dealing with differences-and so did his classmates. Filmed over the course of the third-grade school year, this 1992 Academy Award-winning documentary vividly captures Peter's achievements and frustrations as he makes a place for himself among his peers. The program features interviews with Peter's parents, teachers, fellow students, and aides, and also illustrates how his classmates' wary tolerance grows into sincere acceptance as they actively involve themselves in his process of socialisation. "You think that you're teaching Peter things, but really Peter's teaching you things. We might be teaching him stuff like how to do things, but he's teaching us more how to think and how to react to other problems."--Peter's Classmate. An HBO Production.--Kanopy
Merrepen( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Merrepen palm tree is one of many plants that provide a life source for the people of the Daly River region in the top end of the Northern Territory. A group of women from the Nauiya community on the Daly River take us into their country to gather the precious Merrepen leaves and berries. With great humour and vitality, they show us how Merrepen leaves are stripped and made into fibre, and how these fibres are dyed into bright colours using the berries, bark, flowers and roots of the Merrepen, the Pandanus and other plants. The dyed fibres are then intricately hand-woven into versatile dilly bags, baskets and mats. Many of the women work together doing their elaborate dying and weaving at the Merrepen Arts Centre in the Nauiya community, and discuss the influence of the missions on their handcrafts. This beautifully photographed documentary includes striking landscapes of the Daly River area, and is narrated by Marrfurra, a young woman from the Nauiya community. Marrfurra looks into the future of Indigenous arts and culture in the area: "There are not enough elders left. Thats why we are painting our stories and making things. Thats why I work with the old people. They teach me and my sisters, aunties and cousins about our culture and traditions."
Gender and communication : styles and stereotypes( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moment someone declares, "Its a boy!" or "Its a girl!" the biological make up of that child isnt the only thing established - a process of gendering begins and continues throughout that persons life. One aspect of that process is how we learn to communicate. Based on the premise that males and females learn different ways to relate, this program investigates how communication styles fall onto a continuum of what society deems as masculine and feminine and what it means to deviate from the norm

Crook hat and camphoo( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crook Hat and Camphoo are Alyawarra elders, from central Australia, who are concerned about the survival of traditional skills and culture. As Crook Hat says at the beginning of this outstanding film: "We are telling the old people's way. It's not just our way. We are trying to teach others what we have learnt." In this film, Crook Hat and Camphoo pass on knowledge and skills relating to the making of spears and spear-throwers (woomeras). The two elders go into the bush to find suitable tree branches for making spears and spear-heads, and use fire to straighten the branches. After peeling the bark and smoothing the wood, they use sinew from a kangaroo and tree resin to fasten the spear-head to the spear. Other wood is used for the spear-thrower or woomera, and again they use plant resin to make a comfortable grip for the hunter. As they make their spears and woomeras, Crook Hat and Camphoo reflect on the ingenuity of the old ways, and remember being taught by their fathers. Their need to pass on their knowledge is deeply felt and affects everything they do. This short film is a moving and eloquent reflection on the transfer of knowledge from elders to a new generation of Aboriginal people and to a wider world. --Kanopy

Music & movement in early learning( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When young children hear music, their natural inclincation is to move their bodies in response to it. Research has shown that this movement, like the music itself, is an integral factor in the brain's and the body's healthy development. Music is an invaluable learning tool by itself, but its impact is vastly enhanced when it is joined with movement.
