Over the course of 5 weeks, the 8/1 homeroom class has been watching two documentaries: Exodus, and Exodus: The Journey Continues. Frontline, an affiliate of PBS, produced the documentaries. In these documentaries Frontline, vividly captures the ongoing global crisis – immigration – by profiling a few families over the span of 2 years.
Students were actively engaged while watching these documentaries. They asked a number of questions which allowed us to partake in meaningful dialogue. We, as a class, were quite impacted by the documentary, that we decided to write letters to Frontline.
Just a few days ago, Frontline sent us a response which you can see below.
The students were amazed that their letters were read by the Frontline team. It was a great reinforcer for students to grasp one of our KPIS ESLR’s – Global Citizenship. The hope is that they will continue to take action for the city, country, and world in which they live, through the power of words
