In World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements, filmmaker Chris Farina tells how John Hunter created the "World Peace Game" for his students in Richmond, Virginia. The game teaches conflict resolution and collective problem solving and transforms students from a neighborhood public school to citizens of the world. The film reveals how a wise, loving teacher can unleash students' full potential. The film premiered at South by Southwest in 2010 and was shown on public television two years later. John Hunter spoke at TED 2011, and his book, World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements, was published earlier this year.
After a screening, award-winning teacher John Hunter and filmmaker Chris Farina discuss World Peace -- the game, the book, the film -- and take questions from the audience.
