TWM’s 22-minute documentary Cesar Chavez: Respect for All and the accompanying Learning Guide have been selected for presentation at the annual conference of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) to be held in Austin Texas, November 22-24, 2019. The acceptance letter stated:

“To ensure the highest quality sessions presented at the Annual Meeting, your submission underwent a double-blind review. It was reviewed blind (without revealing authorship) by up to six . . . highly qualified peer reviewers, all of whom gave you high marks. A second review was completed by the Conference Planning Committee who also IDENTIFIED YOUR SESSION AS AMONG THE BEST.” (emphasis supplied).

Deborah Elliott and James Frieden, founders of TWM, will screen the film and analyze the educational guide with attendees. The title of the presentation is: Cesar Chavez: A Moral Superhero for Today’s Students. It is an honor for TWM to be showcased at this conference. Check out the Learning Guide and the film.
