Explicit Content: Teaching Empathy, Literature and History through Banned Books

Student voice is not only a major part of PPHS model but also one of Coach Kara Witsman’s newest Immersion Project, “Explicit Content”. She came up with the idea for the project so that students would have an opportunity to examine the power that an individual voice can have, even if at times, they may feel muted. Witsman was excited to take on the challenge of presenting “touchy” or historically charged topics through a project, with a focus on understanding and acceptance.
