This three part series called Resolutions: A Digital Dialogue was conducted in 2003 between students from New Trier High School and Evanston Township High School. Mindy Faber (ETHS) and Stephen Murphy (New Trier) collaborated to serve as project leads and curriculum designers. The project was funded by a grant from Northwestern University School of Education and Social Policy.
Resolutions took place over an entire semester. The project was influenced by theories and practices of Paulo Friere, community-based art and youth media education. The project was student-centered and student led with teachers serving as mentors/guides and facilitators helping students answer an inquiry based essential question that was compelling to them all - “why is the rivalry between New Trier and Evanston so intense that it often leads to violence?”
