(Spring 2023)

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

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.
