My name is Seth and I am a senior in high school. I’m into musical theatre and wiener dogs. How’s that for an introduction.
Third hour, first semester I’m taking a course called Innovation and Communications. We’re to choose a topic, a problem, or something we don’t know too much about and educate ourselves as well as our peers. Our goal is simply to do something about it. 50 minutes a day we’re doing something. Educating, innovating, and hopefully making a change.
Some other topics students are exploring include encouraging kindness and positivity in our schools, changing the view of anti-smoking campaigns, educating high school students on rape culture, and educating and promoting equality of transgender people and students.
My friend Kelly (kellydrieth.blogspot.com) and I are grouping together in a project to promote awareness of the use of American Sign Language and respect for deaf/hard of hearing people. I’ll be using this blog to document whatever projects we do and what we learn.
