Oneida, NY, United States. March 10, 2014(PressReleasePoint)—Documentary filmmaker Ramona Persaud explores how teachers can use brain science to engage students of all ages and academic abilities in her new documentary Grey Matters, currently in production. It's the story of three teachers, who teach the way the brain learns, in average American public school classrooms. .
Imagine teaching the way the brain learns, instead of developing policies like Common Core, Race to the Top, and No Child Left Behind and hoping they stick.
Ramona Persaud is an independent documentary filmmaker, writer, and photographer. "Grey Matters" is her second film. Persaud’s first film, "It’s a Different World," explores the world of autism through the eyes of three autistic children. Visit www.greymattersdocumentary.comfor more information.
