Helping Florida Rebound From Hurricane Irma
TEA Students Produced This Short Documentary After Completing Service Work in Florida
A group of 9th and 10th grade TEA students traveled to South Florida to help people affected by Irma while also seeking to understand the political, economic, scientific and cultural ramifications of natural disasters in the modern world.
Their goal on the trip – to help restore and regenerate some of the negative effects of Irma. Throughout their experiences, students learned a lot about how natural disasters impact people and how they can help.
Before their trip, students became a documentary film crew as they took on roles of scriptwriters, filmers, producers, and editors. They created this short documentary, 100% on their own, and shared it with an authentic audience during our inaugural TEA Film Festival.
