We're pleased to present a new collaboration with an awesome class of seventh graders who want to make a change in Philly.
This spring, WTL visited Ms. Taryn Noll's seventh grade service learning class at World Communications Charter School, where students had chosen gun violence as a topic they wanted to focus their class around. Throughout the year, they did research, created murals, invited guest speakers, and offered support to peers who had lost loved ones to gun violence.
During our visit, we talked with the students about gun violence: what we'd observed and learned through our project, what they'd observed and learned through their projects and their lives. Each class was working on a final project: a video about gun violence in Philly. It was great to see how they combined their experiences with what they'd learned in class, and how much they wanted to share this with others. Please head to the collab page to check out their final products, and view more pictures from our visit!
This fall, we're hoping to stay in touch with some of the WCCS students and interview them so that we can share their perspectives on our website.
Thanks so much to Ms. Noll's class for welcoming us, and we look forward to working with you in the future!
