SIELP: A Great Way to Spend the Summer

Documentary. Role: Workshop leader, editor. Client: Summer Intensive English Learning Program.

The Summer Intensive English Learning Program in Brooklyn provided a 5-week summer camp for English language learners who were just entering high school. As part of my role as classroom instructor, I offered a before-school class on documentary video production. Students filmed their classmates and teachers using questions we developed together as a class. The result was a 5-minute mini-documentary about the program.
