The Lie

At Stedwick Elementary School in Maryland projects are often used as the vehicle for the curriculum because it allows for both the growth of strong community in the classroom as well as engaging and supporting students in high levels of learning. In Ms. Nwoye’s fourth grade class a project that integrated Social Studies and Poetry resulted in the video that you see here. The student work is original and the message is of their choosing.

This powerful video of Maryland students from a project that integrated Social Studies and Poetry shows how they are directly confronting racial and ethnic prejudices. Watch this video of The Lie, and find out how these fourth grade students are helping to grow a strong and equitable community (Marshall Memo).
