An award-winning documentary titled "Jim Allison: Breakthrough", which is a moving, true story of one warm-hearted, stubborn, scientist’s visionary quest to find a cure for cancer is available to educators and their students. 

A Film can be a powerful instructional tool in the classroom and "Jim Allison: Breakthrough" is no exception.  Whether or not your students are interested in pursuing the sciences, everyone should know more about what scientists do and see the human side of their lives.

Thanks to generous underwriters, the film is available as a teaching tool at no cost to educators. Given the nationwide move to distance learning as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to let you know about this free online resource.  Educators can send a link to their students to view the film and utilize a simple Educator Guide that includes discussion questions, writing prompts, and research questions appropriate for high school and college-aged learners.  (Uncommon Productions)
