Human Rights: 8th Grade Digital Exhibit Project: Home

Digital exhibits on human rights created by students in Georgia Chehade's 2020-2021 8th Grade English class

Digital Exhibit Project

It's Trevor Noah: Born a CrimeStudents in Georgia Chehade's English class started the 2020-21 school year by reading Trevor Noah's memoir It's Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.  Reading the book sparked an interest in looking into real-word issues, and then research into human rights issues from around the world and throughout history. 

Students created digital exhibits, inspired by the online collections that museums post online.  The content ranges from original poems and artwork to historical articles and ways to get involved. Subjects include but are not limited to modern-day slavery, civil rights, mass incarceration, freedom of speech, and women and gender rights. 

This year, WSA’s theme is belonging. This project allowed students to investigate and pursue topics of personal interest under the umbrella of human rights and make their voices heard. We are a community that strives to take care of each other, create a safe space for everyone to grow, open their minds, and deepen their sense of empathy. In doing so, we create a stronger community, and world.  — Georgia Chehade
