Students at DeKalb Early College, an early college initiative for high-ability students who have not been successful in traditional high schools, participate in a documentary project to deepen understanding of literary works and historical background. After reading Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, students examine the force of racism in society and extract a theme from the novel to research. Students develop a storyboard based on their chosen theme and compile footage to create a documentary.
