This session will take you behind the scenes of a high school documentary filmmaking course with two key goals: building cultural competency and developing students’ communication skills via the documentary film format. First, we will explore the ways in which students were provided “windows” into diverse people, backgrounds, and identities across the globe through an assortment of award-winning documentary films. Then, we will examine how students developed “mirrors” for reflection about their own identities and designed personal narratives through self-created documentary films.
