INVESTIGATING WHERE WE LIVE
Summer 2012 | The National Building Museum | With Andrew Costanzo, Lauren Wilson, Kayla McCormick. Marina Pate, Kaitlin Eckenroth, and Jasmine Marr
Created by the National Building Museum in 1996, Investigating Where We Live (IWWL) is a summer outreach program designed for middle school and high school students ages 12-16 from the D.C. metropolitan area. IWWL participants learn to use creative writing and photography as a means of understanding and describing D.C. neighborhoods. At the end of the program, participants show what they have learned by creating a museum exhibition that features their insights and work.
Project Role: Wrote and developed lesson plans for National Building Museum Summer Programs. Taught lessons on photography, drawing, painting, and urban studies to DC area highschool students. Supervised site visits and field trips. Managed social media. Ultimately led students in the design and completion of a year long exhibition.
