“…. I started with the date that Stratford was integrated, February 2, 1959, and began working backwards. . . . there is no narration . . .the entire dialog is strictly from the interviews–from the people who actually experienced the moment. No voice-over comments. No editorializing.” John Stuhldreher, AETV Producer
“Claro! English for Parents”This video series was produced for native spanish-speaking parents and families with children who are new to the public school system. The objective is to inform families about the culture and policies of the public schools while learning basic English in the context of school situations.
“I started by researching which would be the topics by talking with school staff and parents. Topics needed to be practical, and for everyday application, not large concepts. . . John came up with the clever title of “Claro!” In Spanish the word “claro” has multiple applications–when something suddenly makes sense you say, “Claro!” like “Of course! Its clear to me now.” When someone asks a favor and you comply, you say, “Claro!” like “Sure! Of course, no problem.” And it was our hope that the programs would make things more “claro” for the families.” Hildi Quinonez, Distance Learning Production Specialist
