Third graders at Ocean Avenue Elementary School recently completed a Side x Side video program led virtually by teaching artist Casey Ledoux. The program was integrated with a literacy unit called “Who We Are” in which students wrote scripts that celebrated their cultural backgrounds, chose which International Baccalaureate attributes they most resonated with, and thought about their social and academic goals. Students then worked with Ledoux over Zoom to produce a drawing relevant to their scripts which they used as backgrounds for filming brief dialogues on green screen camera to share their work and thoughts. Ledoux then combined the video footage and artwork to create a film that premiered at a Zoom showcase.
