This was a great video to connect my students and my classroom Pyramid of Success. We made the connection that with hard work and motivation to want to accomplish your dreams you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Montebello Intermediate, Montebello, CA
As usual, another high quality film from Izzit. This generated a lot of interest and discussion in my class since most of my students didn't have any idea that a caste or class system like this one still existed. In general, they all thought it was a backward, outdated system but were able to relate it to a number of other policies throughout history, such as slavery or arranged marriages, that simply are unfathomable to most of my middle class, American students. Keep up the great work.

This is one of my new favorites. It explains the culture in another country without judging and shows how hard work and taking initiative can make a difference.
