We have used photography and writing to make documentaries and bios about their village on the west coast of Mexico.
Nancy Modern at the Portsmouth High School has worked with me to introduce the students in her language department to the students in Mexico, through book form, exhibition and images posted to flickr.
During my residency at the Portsmouth High School this year I introduced the students and the teachers to this Learning to See Blog where you can see the start of dialog. There is also a Facebook presence.
This project is a work in progress. It continues to grow and adapt. Technology and language have become an interracial part of the program.
Thank you to Terra Merry, Helaine Wemple, Tara Hebert, Susan MacNichol and Nancy Wheaton Modern at the Portsmouth HS who integrated this project into their curriculum.
