The SEL Blog
Anchorage’s East High is the most ethnically diverse school in the Nation, and 80% of the student body is or previously was classified as English Language Learners. This project aims to empower immigrant and refugee students to make short films on Social-Emotional Learning. Students can choose to create one film, or to engage in a semester-long curriculum that will enable them to receive credit, which is often a necessity for graduation. This program will provide SEL for participating students, the entire student body who will view the films, and community members in Anchorage through a public film screening.
