In the Stories of Direction Project, students explored the essential question, “How do journeys transform us?”

In order to explore this, students wrote “flash narratives” about community members who had relocated and experienced culture shock. They also read about sea exploration and studied the literary metaphor of the boat. They then built and enhanced scale model boats to symbolize the journeys of their community members as they adapted to new cultures. The project closed with an exhibition that celebrated the stories of the displaced community members.
