The seventh grade is exploring the theme of migration using an integrated curriculum in social studies and spectacle arts. In their social studies unit on westward expansion students took on the questions, “Why do people move? What is the personal effect of moving?” Students developed a series of questions to use in a one on one interview with neighbors and family members who had moved to Chicago from another location. The conducted interviews were transformed into sculptural shoe shrines that visually communicate the personal experiences of moving.
