Seamaac Letter Writing

We started planning for our videos with the Seamaac group. We now have a semi-consistent group of kids. We are using the postcard structure to generate short personal narratives about each student. The outline looks like this: “Dear Philadelphia, my name is ____. I live at ____. I want to tell you about myself….”

The prompts we gave were:
What do you value in your life and why?
What does home mean to you?
How would you describe your cultural background?
What do you want to be when you are older?

From here, they picked one or all of these questions to elaborate on. After the narrative was written, they storyboarded six images that they want to use to convey their ideas. We will start filming on Thursday.
