Begin by viewing the 45min musical film "One Voice" about students struggling to form a GSA in a fictional school, as well as teachers living with contracts forcing them to stay in the closet or risk being fired. Q&A with the Director and Teacher/Producer to follow. Film Making can help students to create and tell meaningful stories to deal with issues that are important to them. These student lead issues often end up promoting equity, human rights, and social justice as they learn that Arts Inquiry can build not just their own identity and skills but can help bring a voice to the voiceless. Students feel strongly about defending their rights to be who they know they always have been, without the historical discrimination that has told them to hide and be ashamed. Learn how student and teacher voices from public and religious schools were balanced to educate, connect, and empathize.
