The Biggest Story Problem is an independent documentary film examining the sudden drop in math scores and competency seen as students in the U.S. transition from primary to secondary schools. Scott has gained 14 years of in-classroom teaching experience at the elementary, secondary and university levels, since earning his doctoral degree in Education from the University of Northern Colorado. While teaching middle school, he developed seven story-based, in-classroom math games with historical fiction themes that became the focal point of his classroom curriculum. Scott strives to support educators and educational leadership in changing the underlying pedagogy of their student classrooms.
