Malala (English Student Video)

Our assignment was to do a project that addressed a human right, so we made a video describing that everyone has the right to learn. We were inspired to make a play retelling the true story of Malala Yousafsai because we thought her story was powerful and full of passion. We learned as part of this lesson that everyone should be treated as equals and be able to learn anything. We practiced skills like teamwork and to be strong when being oppressed.

Just Because (English Student Video)

Our assignment was to say stuff about our identities and counteract the stereotypes. We learned several things as part of this lesson: don't judge a book by its cover, and you don't know everyone's story. We practiced listening, collaborating, communicating, appreciating ourselves and others, and camera techniques.
