Building on the ideas of Lev Vygotsky and Jerome Bruner, the consultants for this film worked with teachers in urban schools to foster self-regulated learning. This production presents both the theoretical underpinnings of their work and its results. Viewers visit busy classrooms where students are being helped to take responsibility for their education. The film offers useful viewpoints on constructivistic practice in elementary education.
