Unit Overview: Students will engage with photographic artifacts, personal stories and reporting, as well as prepare interviews with members of their own communities to examine the impacts of COVID-19 on communities throughout the U.S.  Students will seek out common themes, and explore how those themes drive them to investigate further, as well as synthesize a deeper understanding of the communities around them. Finally, students will create artistic or written work to synthesize their understanding of the themes they have encountered in visual, textual, and interpersonal resources.
