An exciting new opportunity with the Pipeline Project in Neah Bay
Do you love working with elementary students?
Are you interested in immersing yourself in the beauty and strength of the Native Makah
Do you want a deep, engaging, non-traditional learning experience in the Pacific Northwest?
If you answered yes to the above questions, consider applying for the
“Telling Your Story” project, a partnership between the UW’s
Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School on the Olympic
Peninsula. During the 2010-2011 school year, a small group of UW
students will take part in a year-long documentary film-making project
with Neah Bay Elementary students. Using digital story telling (video or documentary creation), UW
students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah
people while mentoring 4th-5th grade students to deepen their
understanding and exploration of their own Native tribal culture.
To apply, go to www.exp.washington.edu/pipeline and learn more about
the program. Note that this project will require a non-negotiable
3-quarter commitment, as well as a 4 week partnership experience
during September (9/10 – 9/14 in Seattle and 9/15 – 9/24 in Neah Bay), and engagement in Neah Bay during spring break. There are no fees besides tuition and students will earn up to 12 EDUC401 credits.
