Today, I got to spend a brilliant day in Chicago (sunny with temperatures in the mid 70’s) working with the students filming in Chinatown. I was assisting a veteran teacher who has come back to cover the maternity leave of the teacher who started the project four years ago. The students did a great job once again and conducted interesting interviews and took a collection of digital images.
Beginning Monday, the students will be editing their footage and still images to create a documentary about their research topic. This will culminate in the premieres of their films on Wednesday, May 30th. I look forward to watching their stories emerge.
