Alana DeJoseph has made her award-winning documentary about the Peace Corps available for college and secondary school teachers. RPCV teachers, this is a great opportunity for you to tell your Peace Corps story to your students and also, with the film, tell the story of the agency.
Director of the film, Alana DeJoseph, writes:
The feature documentary A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps is going to school! We are developing lesson plans for middle schools, high schools, and universities to teach the history of the Peace Corps through the lens of various fields of study. And we would love to take advantage of the expertise so many RPCVs have. So, we are asking RPCV professors (current and retired) from the following fields of study to connect with us at info@peacecorpsdocumentary.
com to help us make these lesson plans the best they can be!
Areas of study:
– International Studies and Area Studies
– Political Science
– Economics (development economics)
– Health (public health)
– Environmental fields (forestry, agriculture, fisheries, conservation…)
And for those who teach different topics, but feel that their subject matter also would fit, please, don’t hesitate to connect with us!
Write Alana and tell her what works for you at the college and secondary school levels. You can help create a national college or high school course based on your Peace Corps story and her film. This is a great chance to make a difference. (Again!)
