We were proud to present

The Allen-Stevenson School 9th Grade project:
Facing History and Ourselves

teachers: Julia Kunin, Rob McCallum, Tara Parsons
Students: Matt Dwyer, Hunter Erensel, Aaron Fogle, John Hersey, Miles Hill, Dimitri Mortsakis, Alexander Tomashoff, Skyler Wasser, Harry Whitney

Each spring the ninth grade at the Allen-Stevenson School [a boys kindergarten - 9th grade academy] creates works of political art as part of Facing History and Ourselves.  This interdisciplinary course examines issues of racism, discrimination, citizenship, democracy, decision-making, and personal responsibility using the Holocaust as a case study.  Through readings, films, role-playing, discussions, guest speakers and trips, we explore issues of identity, human behavior, the events leading up to and surrounding the Holocaust, and key moments in American history as well as current, global events.  Central is an examination of four possilbe roles: perpetrators, victims, rescuers and bystanders.

Each boy artistically explores an issue or event involving a Facing History theme that is personally meaningful to him.  Past projects have tackled such subjects as colonialism, the Armenian Genocide, perceptions of the Other, and racial profiling, utilizing a variety of methods including sculpture, painting, collage, video and performance. The course culminates in a critique where the boys present, explain and "defend" their projects to the school's faculty, parents, and interested guests.  All are welcome.  For more information see:
