Engage, Reflect, Create through Documentar-A Time Capsule of NOW!

Session description: Bring your heart and mind to this participatory experience that you can easily lead with students. Discover why documentar is described as "meaningful," "emotional clarity," "enriching," and uplifting!" Engage students in this "time capsule of now" to enable self-awareness, authenticity of expression, and to create a personal and collective way to know what your students are thinking about and feeling in these challenging times. 

Learn the process, take part yourself, and be well-prepared to lead with students, faculty, families, and community so we can witness, connect, care, and share our stories. So many ways to adapt to different ages, to in-person and virtual/hybrid situations, themes and topics, and can lead to students taking meaningful action. 

Builds emotional literacy, reflection skills, creativity, spontaneity, respect for self and others, and enjoyment! Your students will want to experience documentar more than once!
