A short documentary series on educational programs in NYC that transcend the norm.
Extracurricular is a series of short films (under ten minutes each) that highlight compelling educational programs New York City schools are implementing to engage, transform, and transcend traditional, educational curricula.
The films’ narratives will be told from the point of view of an educator or student to show how a particular program has had a transformative impact.
Audiences will share the excitement of children exploring such unique extracurricular opportunities. Students highlighted in the series will be diverse-- in grade level, demographics, and ranges of ability.
The goal for the series is to inspire educators to think outside-the-box and create a more contemporary, relative curriculum. These short pieces are a demonstration of how exciting and meaningful learning can be as students deal with the issues of their time.
