I donated in support of this campaign.
The Chula Vista Zine Fest project is designed to incorporate our two 11th grade core classes: Mrs. Nuvia's Biology class and Mrs. Hood-Esparza's Humanities class.
This project is founded on three guiding questions:
In order for our team to answer these core questions, we will be creating these following final products:
To design a professional quality event, we are partnering with the creator of the Tijuana Zine Fest, Luisa Martinez. Ms. Luisa will act as professional consultant on the production of our art pieces, suggesting ideas and giving artistic insight. She will support students in reaching out to the zine community to participate in design workshops, critique sessions and exhibit at the fest.
Our class is partnering with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego for this project. The museum will support us in the creation of our zines and art pieces, while hosting a public space for students to display their work.
We are also partnering with experts in the fields of developmental biology, cognitive science, and neuroscience. Scientists will visit our classroom to deepen students understanding of brain health. Students will discuss with scientists how basic and social needs promote healthy development of the adolescent brain.
Students in the process will contact an advocate/expert for their topic to interview and request professional critique of final products. Students will use quotes from expert to support their persuasive essay for their social topic. Prior to exhibition the advocate/expert will critique persuasive essay to be published in zine.
