  • Grant Summary:

    Funding is for The Empathy Project, a year-long project for Nonnewaug 9th graders/teachers in Woodbury. Using the Holocaust as a platform for learning students are entrenched in history through museum visits, survivor interviews, literature, and film, to show how even among these atrocities people had compassion. Through this work students make connections to present day – how to overcome fear with compassion. Students then use multiple mediums of expression to create a public display/forum to share what they have learned.
