6 Day — GWU CET

Through a six-day training, MHP teaching artists help preservice teachers in George Washington University's Community Engaged Teaching program develop visual storytelling and arts integration skills.

The Project: Community Engaged Teaching (CET) is a unique Masters of Education program at George Washington University that prepares its pre-service teachers to develop the knowledge, skills, and aptitude necessary to teach for engaged citizenship and foster community building in the classroom and greater school environment. Through the series of six workshops facilitated by teaching artists from Meridian Hill Pictures, CET pre-service teachers learned video storytelling, media production, editing and community outreach. The teachers learned the art of community video storytelling by creating their own short documentary videos reflecting on their understanding of what it means to be a community-engaged teacher. The participating teachers also received resource guides and advanced arts integration training to prepare for their first year of teaching. Aligning with MHP’s mission to cultivate social impact through filmmaking, participating teachers investigate the ways in which media produced by students and teachers can create positive changes in education locally and nationwide.



The Team:

  • Media Teaching Artists: Brandon Kramer, Ellie Walton
  • GWU Professors: Maia Sheppard, Brian Casemore
  • GWU Students: Vaughn Perry, Aimee Radic, Abbie Petit, Cassandra Graham, Emma Abruzzo, Katherine McClintic
  • Executive Producers: Brandon Kramer, Lance Kramer
