is the creation of three mothers coming together with a
fundamental belief in empowering children. We believe
children have a powerful voice that is relatable, healing
and hopeful. Ultimately, we want children to know they are
not alone in what they are experiencing and that much can
be learned by simply listening to another child’s story.

point of view.

you. People who do work that they are good at tend to
be more successful in their careers. But it’s not enough
to know your best skills. You need to be able to communicate those skills to an employer. To be most successful, you need to take an inventory of all your skills
so that you know which ones to emphasize throughout
the job search. This video helps you do just that.

They aren’t a ticket to an interview, just the passport
required to be considered. This video covers the
purpose and value of resumes, cover letters, portfolios,
and other job search materials. It gives suggestions
for making the most of those documents and suggests
resources for even more help.
“The video production is clear and the audio is crisp
and easy to understand. The film’s entertaining and
humorous approach to good customer service will make
this production useful for viewers in high school and
beyond.”

DIGITAL SAFETY AND RESPONSIBILITY SERIES
Grades 3+ The innovation and evolution of digital
technologies has created a new way of teaching,
learning, socializing, and communicating. The
adoption of new digital technology is so rapid that a
uniform and proactive concept of responsible use is
often overlooked. With these constant changes, the
irresponsible, and often
dangerous and malicious use of these digital devices
can lead to negative, life-altering consequences.
The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell Phone
Communication’s (IROC) founder Richard Guerry’s*
approach is solution oriented and preventive. In the
digital world your actions are “public and permanent.”
Working with IROC, Mazzarella Media has produced a
series of programs that provides digital users, young
and old, with the information they need to make good
digital decisions.
Awareness greatly reduces the risk of becoming a
victim of a cyber-crime or digital exploitation. There
are separate age-appropriate programs and guides for
grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-college.
Each program is divided into several 7-10 minute
chapters.
This Program also aims to inform students in the
importance of being aware of their digital behaviors.
In addition, it provides tools, tips, and comprehensive
curriculum to increase everyone’s digital awareness
and consciousness. 2011

• THE SEX TALKS YOU MUST HAVE
(BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BECOME SEXUALLY ACTIVE)
GH5044MA116 • $149.95 • 20 Min.
Grades 7+ For a teen, deciding to become sexually
active IS a big deal. It IS a life-changing decision.
That’s why it’s so important to have open and honest
discussions with your partner about sex, before you
become sexually active. This program is designed to
make students aware of the physical and emotional
health risks of having sexual relations.
The most effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs
is choosing not to have sex. No other way is guaranteed. This program discusses the importance of using
a condom to be protected from sexually transmitted
diseases and an unplanned pregnancy.
The program emphasizes that parents may be the best
resource for a teen before they decide to become sexually active. How do you begin the conversation? Several

• UNDERSTANDING SEXUAL CONSENT
(THE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND LEGAL CONSEQUENCES)
GH5045MA116 • $149.95 • 21 Min.
Grades 7+ Many times people may feel confused when
it comes to sex and intimacy. Sometimes it’s difficult
to know if the person you’re with wants to be intimate
and even more difficult to ask or find out. Everyone
needs to understand consent is and is not. That’s what
this program is about.
In this program students will learn that consent is
not passive. Consent is a behavior that clearly shows
that the person agrees to the sexual activity at the
time. Viewers will come to understand that giving in is
not the same as giving consent and you can’t assume
consent.
The video points out that many people are manipulated
into doing things they’re not ready or willing to do.
The program show’s examples of how manipulators use
insults and threats to get what they want and that
manipulation is not consent.
Teens will learn that saying yes one time does not
imply ongoing, unlimited consent and that they have
the right to change their mind and say no anytime for
any reason.
Students will come to understand what consent IS
and what it is NOT. They will come to realize that a
misunderstanding can cause physical, emotional and
legal consequences that can impact the rest of their
life. 2011

• CLIMATES & SEASONS DVD CE4128MA116
This program looks at the wide range of climates in
North America and around the world, and examines
how factors such as the sun, wind, temperature, precipitation and position of Earth determine the weather
for a particular region. Live footage, vivid graphics and
a hands-on experiment help to clearly illustrate these
concepts.
• CLOUDS DVD CE4129MA116
In this program, students will learn how clouds form,
the different types of clouds and the important role
they play in weather and the water cycle. In addition,
students will see how other meteorological events occur, including fog, mist, smog, thunder and lightning.
Learn about how meteorologists analyze the size, shape
and location of clouds in order to determine the effect
that they will have on the weather. Doppler radar
graphics and a hands-on science experiment help these
concepts be easily understood.
• HURRICANES & TORNADOES DVD CE4130MA116
In this program, students will study both phenomena
from their development to the full-blown storms that
wreak havoc on land. Through satellite images, Doppler
radar, graphics and storm footage, this program shows
how meteorologists and “storm chasers” use data such
as location, movement, wind speed, temperature and
air pressure to predict the course of these storms, and
provide early warnings to people living in their path.
In a hands-on experiment, students will re-create
the circular pattern of a tornado’s vortex to further
illustrate these concepts.
• METEOROLOGY DVD CE4131MA116
Did you ever wonder how weather forecasters predict
the weather? This program looks at how meteorologists
gather and interpret current weather data. Students
will be introduced to everything from weather maps,
weather stations and satellites to airplanes, weather
ships and weather balloons. Students will also learn
how to read a meteorological weather map and see the
office of the National Weather Service.
• RAIN & SNOW DVD CE4132MA116
In this program, concise explanations of the various
types of precipitation provide students with insight
into how rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog and mist form, as
well as how the water cycle -- evaporation, condensation and precipitation -- constantly “recycles” water
around the world. Students will also learn how the density of water changes in different states. See typical
weather patterns across North America, and watch how
a ski resort keeps slopes looking white.
• WIND DVD CE4133MA116
This program explores the mechanics of measuring
wind speed and direction as well as the use of wind as
an energy source. Students will also learn how wind
occurs by finding out about the roles of temperature,
air pressure and the sun. Graphics and animation will
clearly illustrate these patterns. Students will also
learn how hot-air balloons work in this exciting look at
weather’s invisible force.

Grades 4–8 What happens to water as it moves through
the water cycle? Where does our supply of drinking
water come from? What are the causes and effects of a
flood? Under-standing water means learning about all of
the ways in which it can influence our lives. Water is a
precious natural resource that is vital to the survival of
all living things.
While only a small portion of Earth’s water is fresh water,
an even smaller amount is available for human needs.
Scientific and geographical explanations answer important questions in this video series about the role and
influence of water on people. From the Yorkshire flood
plain to the Las Vegas Valley to the river delta of Bangladesh, this documentary-style series uses real-world
examples of people and places that are affected by water
in different ways. Programs

Grades 4–8 Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks
created a wealth of compelling stories to explain the
mysteries and complexities of the world around them.
This animated video series captures the drama of these
stories and illustrates the ancients’ beliefs about the
wonders of the universe. Each show is enhanced by
an informative on-camera host, who helps highlight
some of the common mythological themes threaded

lives today. 2004
Grades 7-12 Shakespeare for Students is composed of
well-focused, 2-4 minute clips, each about a different
aspect of Shakespeare’s writings — from his masterful
use of language, to his well-crafted characters, to key
moments and passages that are both powerful and
memorable. Through on-screen text, the reading of passages, interesting examples and thoughtful discussions,
students will engage in a well-rounded exploration of
what are considered by many to be some of the greatest
works in the English language. Along the way, they will
discover why readers and audiences have enjoyed the
work of this poet and playwright for so many years!

Grades 5–9 During the 17th and 18th centuries, Great
Britain expanded its global empire by establishing
colonies in North America. Over time, the colonists developed their own institutions and practices (including
the evasion of British tax and trade laws), and a spirit
of independence was born! Through a dynamic mix
of historical stills, expert interviews and live-action
reenactments, The American Revolution for Students
traces the struggle for power and control between the
colonies and Great Britain. From the colonists’ rejection
of mercantilist laws to the “shot heard round the world,”
and the eventual establishment of the world’s greatest
experiment in democracy, students will get a vivid look
at the remarkable decisions, documents and personalities that helped lay the foundation for the development
of a new nation. 2004

Grades 9+ Complete set of Artist of the 20th Century
titles ©2004
• ALBERTO GIACOMETTI DVD CE6529MA116
When his unique and startling statues were exhibited
in New York in 1948, they immediately became icons of
20th century art. His concept of depicting the emptiness around an object had a revolutionary influence on
post-modern art. Also, his reduction of the human form
to its essential elements heralded Minimalism, one of
the 20th century’s most fruitful movements.
• ANDY WARHOL DVD CE6521MA116
Through his groundbreaking work, he brought avant
garde art to the public conscious and became one of
the most influential figures in post-war American art.
Includes spectacular images of his greatest work.
• FRANCIS BACON DVD CE6524MA116
“Bacon’s major impact on the art world began in
1944 with his Three Studies for Figures at the Base
of a Crucifixion. Though he was initially inspired by
Surrealism, Bacon’s work was frequently influenced
by the imagery of the old masters, usually translated
into blurred and gory figures imprisoned in unspecific,
architectural settings.“
• HENRI MATISSE DVD CE6525MA116
Henri Matisse is regarded as one of the most influential
figures in 20th century art. Loved by artists, critics,
and the public alike, a museum dedicated to Matisse
was opened in 1952, two years before his death.
• JACKSON POLLOCK DVD CE6527MA116
Jackson Pollock became one of the most notorious
artists that America ever produced. He developed a
technique in which he would fix his canvas to the
floor, drip and splash paint onto it, then use a variety
of objects to manipulate the paint. With these innovative paintings, he became the front-runner of the
Abstract Expressionist movement.
• JOAN MIRO DVD CE6523MA116
Miro drew on memory and fantasy to create works
of art that are visual metaphors of surrealist poetry.
The dreamlike visions have a whimsical or humorous
quality, but also appeal to an art of the spirit. Miró;
had a colossal output; during his 90 years he made at
least 2,000 oil paintings, 500 sculptures, 400 ceramic
objects, and 5,000 drawings and collages. Accompanied
by images of the artist’s greatest work.
• MAN RAY DVD CE6518MA116
Inventive, audacious, with an effervescent imagination, and a continual willingness to call traditional
notions of art into question, Man Ray was the quintessential avant-garde artist.
• MARC CHAGALL DVD CE6516MA116
Born in Russia in 1887, Marc Chagall came to Paris in
1910 and entered the arena of European painting. From
his Belorussian and eastern Jewish origins, Chagall
brought into play entirely new vistas of irrational
perception from dreams, visions and legends.
106
• MARCEL DUCHAMP DVD CE6528MA116
Duchamp’s work is characterized by humor, a wide
variety of media, and its incessant probing of the
boundaries of art. Duchamp’s legacy includes the
insight that art can be about ideas instead of objects,
a revolutionary notion that would resonate with later
generations of artists.
