THE TEST & THE ART OF THINKING

August 20 7:35pm
Film Introduction by Stuart Katz

About the Speaker:
In 1990, Stuart Katz, now a retired UGA faculty member, published a series of controversial studies of the SAT in the journal Psychological Science and elsewhere. His findings demonstrate that the Reading Comprehension (now “Reading”) task on the SAT measures factors having nothing to do with reading comprehension. Join us at 7:35 pm on August 20, just before Cine’s showing of “The Test and the Art of Thinking”, as Stuart talks about this research, and why it sparked a national conversation that continues today.

About the Film:

Parents, educators, students and college admissions professionals all intimately understand the financial, emotional and intellectual burden of the SAT/ACT—tests that are not only an integral part of the college admissions process for most American students, but also can be a rite of passage for teenagers in the United States. Even as adults, few of us forget our score, or how we felt about what it took to earn it.

The Test & the Art of Thinking traces the history and evolution of the SAT/ACT as a major player on the pathway to higher education in America, and it documents its current power in our culture. In so doing, it strives to support individuals who are embarking on the road to college, by examining what the SAT/ACT measures and means, and asking a range of educational leaders, admissions professionals and stakeholders in the test—from tutors to parents to test designers—to grapple with the test’s use, ramifications and future.

INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES OF
LATIN AMERICA FILM SERIES
September 24, 25 & 26 

To celebrate 2019 as the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages and National Hispanic Heritage Month, we have chosen to showcase three important films on indigenous languages of the Americas. We chose Wiñaypacha (Aymara) and Los Ojos del Camino (Quechua) because these films were made using indigenous languages exclusively. We chose Lantec Chaná (Chaná, Spanish) because it highlights the plight of endangered languages and the possible future awaiting them when only one speaker remains.

AADM ROUNDTABLE: Discussing Race, Policing, & Difficult Conversations

MEETING DATE AND TIME TBD  |  FREE

Our society is experiencing some turbulent times and community members, parents, teachers, and leaders feel uncomfortable discussing difficult issues surrounding race, racism, sexism, immigration, police brutality and educational equity which only keep us divided. Beginning on January 9, 2019, on the second Wednesday of each month, Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement (AADM) will provide a safe space and platform for citizens to have difficult conversations, ask questions, find solutions and learning from each other's experiences. Hosted by Mokah Speaks Podcast, these sessions will include simulations and hands-on activities through dialogue and face-to-face engagement, with an overall goal to gain mutual understanding, and improve race and community relations. 


OLLI@UGA CINEMA + CONVERSATION
