Inspired by the work of Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York” blog, which features street portraits and interviews collected on the streets of New York City, the Humans of FWCD project was created to help students gain an understanding of diversity within the school community.

This collaborative project which integrated English Language Arts, Visual Arts, Media Studies, & Social Studies was completed during the first few weeks of school. The goal of the project was multifaceted. By the end of the project students were able to:

  • Learn what it means to be a member of a culturally diverse community.
  • Better be able to find the commonalities within a diverse group of people.
  • Become better listeners so that they may understand the importance of individual experiences and stories.
  • Grow their sense of inherent kindness, and instill empathy and compassion for all members of our community.

This session will lead participants through the project as they get to experience the power of storytelling first hand while bringing back concrete examples and step by step procedures to recreate this project with their own school community.
