Welcome to the first Heritage student blog


This semester Maria and Pazit are instructing a Filmmaking class, which relates to the Hip Hop cinematic theme, discussing issues of gender, race and community. We are having such good time experiencing the enthusiasm and curiosity the students display. The students are teaming up to videotape interviews about the stereotypes of Skateboarders in their East Harlem community, which ties in with our discussions this semester.

About Archived High School Blog

As part of my Zankel Fellowship I taught Heritage High School students at East Harlem how to produce their own video blog. Having been asked to choose a topic related to gender, race and community the group selected to produce a blog about Skateboarding and Stereotypes. The process of collaborating, planning and producing the video was not easy, but enjoyable, educational and empowering both to the students and to me.
