Jacki McCarty, 8th grade English teacher and Sarah Ibson, 8th grade Social Studies teacher at Harwood Union Middle School partnered with the Vermont Folklife Center on a documentary project in the wake of Hurricane Irene.
In the early days after Hurricane Irene, eighty-five 8th grade students at Harwood sat down to write a prompt about the Hurricane and the Community Response. What grew out of that exercise was a semester long ethnographical interview project that culminated in 5 student produced documentaries.
This powerpoint, originally shared at the Vermont Association of Social Studies in Manchester, Vermont, details the origin of the idea, the scope and sequence of the project, and shows one of the
five final documentaries.
Including references to the tools, technology, and community resources utilized by students to successfully complete the project.
