Obscure Histories, Jr.
Interdisciplinary curricula that
teaches history along with
real world skills.
THE PILOT DOCUMENTARY
8th Grade Students in the Chicago Pilsen neighborhood created this documentary for their final school project.
The Obscure Histories, Jr. curriculum was easy to follow and adapt to our needs within the classroom.
It provided clear steps about the process of creating a documentary and hands on activities for students to practice real world applicable skills.
—Ms. Fox, Assistant Principal
I enjoyed being able to learn about everything that goes into creating a documentary. I especially liked the part where we could work together and create something using the tips and skills we learned.
Being able to learn about how to make a documentary allowed me to open my eyes to the different careers in filmmaking and get a chance to try something new.
—Itzel, 8th Grade
The Obscure Histories, Jr. Program helped bring the students' vision to life! From building a script to production techniques, Obscure Histories, Jr. gave our 8th graders an opportunity to fully engage in a hands-on learning experience with the artwork in their surrounding community.
—Mr. MacDonald, Social Studies
