Please take the time to watch the film Most Likely to Succeed during the first week of the course. The film follows students into the classrooms of High Tech High, a public charter school in San Diego, California. The film combines commentary by a variety of people and follows two groups of ninth graders over the course of a year offering insight into alternative approaches to pedagogy. You can watch the trailer for the film below.
UVic students are able to access the film via this link which uses the libraries’ proxy server to authenticate if off-campus.
