Deeper Learning is an education movement that rebels against ‘teaching to the test,’ and instead prioritizes hands-on learning and real-world experiences.
In this report for PBS NewsHour, producers John Tulenko and David Wald profile three classrooms that put this innovative model into action: an elementary school using paper-mache puppets to teach art and writing, a middle school in Maine that tasks students with building robots and energy saving devices, and a high school statistics course that recently integrated Election Day exit polls into the curriculum.
