Issue-Based Collaborative Short Films
'What Stands in the Way of Peace?'
Mrs. Kushner's Chute 8th graders created this short film in January 2013 as part of the Imagine Peace grant project through the Evanston Public Library. Students address such topics as defining disrespect, describing how it feels to be disrespected, and considering why people disrespect others. They then discuss what kind of people they do respect and how respecting others can help build a better world.
