About Rinse, Wash, Don't Repeat
Through the course of this project, students will explore a group who is directly responsible for the promotion of civil rights and social justice at a local, national, or global stage. Students then will begin to explore what it means to be a civic agent of change. As students begin to have a better understanding of matters involving civil rights and social justice, they will be asked how a student could stop the vicious cycle of injustice by becoming an upstanding citizen.
Students will have four weeks to effectively produce a professional quality video, which clearly demonstrated history repeating itself using innovative resources such as testimonials from the Shoah Foundation Institute , which gathers various survivor testimonials from various events throughout history. They will also create an informative art piece designed to represent the repetitious cycle of rights abuse of their choosing. Finally the students will develop a poetically spoken word piece, which would be presented to the class.
Students will have the choice of media to use in the creation of their informative art piece. They either need to use a poster board, a digital art piece, or performance art that is vide recorded.
1.What examples do we see of history repeating itself?
2.By looking at the crimes against humanity in World War II, can we connect it to something that is going on in the world today?
