Middle School Social Justice Films

One of the most amazing teachers here at Orca is Donte Felder. I have always seen parallels between the way we try to merge critical thinking and creative thinking with students. It has been my honor to get the chance to do a weekly session with his middle school social studies class. I have been helping them develop films related to social justice themes that they care about.


These students are doing an incredible video on police brutality. They took what they see in the community and want to use their voice to make a statement on it.


These ladies are doing a very sad and moving story of bullying that has gone too far. Their writing is complex and engaging.


How about a rap & song about the A Kid A Can A Month program we have this year at Orca?? These ladies have done it.


The profound insight of all these student’s projects speak to how meaningful activities like this can be for developing minds.
