Paper Tigers – documentary
March 28, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
North Kitsap School District Native American Education Program is hosting a screening of a powerful new documentary film at North Kitsap Auditorium, 1881 NE Hostmark Street, Poulsbo, on Monday, March 28 at 6pm.
Stay after the movie for a 30 minute Q & A session with retired Lincoln High Principal Joe Sporleder!!!!!
Paper Tigers explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) on struggling teens. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington, which, after radically changing its approach to disciplining its students, saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of trauma-informed educational strategies and is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving: that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
The screening is free and no pre-registration is required.
