The first semester of teaching Jersey Art Exchange Curriculum as part of the HC Cultural Affairs Pilot Program, for Art House Productions, resulted in a middle school class from PS 14 creating the content on this interactive map, with assistance of myself and a fellow teaching artist: https://viewer.mapme.com/jerseycitystories
This semester, I am teaching the course solo to high school students at Hoboken Charter. I am really excited to see what they come up with by the middle of the spring, when our session is over.
The course focuses on teaching students content production, based on the topic of gentrification. The students create video, photography and audio content for their pieces. We then place the content on the map, creating an entry the includes all the content they’ve gathered, organized and edited.
