The Jungle Book of TeachingStreaming Video - 2012
In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, a British couple runs a different kind of primary school. Each lesson relates to the pupils' remote jungle environment. The children can't see themselves in the cityscapes of the textbooks sent by the local authorities, so they make all their books from scratch. In mathematics they find fractions in rivers, and the fishing ban soon to expire on their beloved river becomes a subject for history. They learn not just facts and figures, but a responsibility for their natural heritage, and they come to understand the impact the end of the fishing ban will have on their families. This documentary focuses on the people who have the most to lose in our changing world.
