“The Secret Song” Screening & Q&A

Mar 7, 2023

11:00am – 12:45pm CT

The Secret Song is an immersive view into the final chapter in Doug Goodkin’s teaching career. His methods are thrown into disarray as the pandemic forces schools into remote learning, and a program that always prioritized singing and learning “through the ear, not the eye” has to adapt to an online format. The film shows the dynamism and adaptability that all teachers must find and bring forth in the classroom. It makes visible the value of improvisation in navigating real-world challenges.
