Weber Innovation — An Early-College High School

Documentaries For The Social Studies Department

Below is a list of documentaries students may choose to watch in their social studies classes. A different documentary will be offered once a week  - the title, date, and time will be posted in Canvas and on the board outside Ms. Benish’s room. Students will not be required to watch any particular documentary, but will be required to choose at least one per quarter as part of whole group instruction and discussion. There will be opportunities to attend additional documentaries and whole group discussions if the student  chooses and those can count as projects within their courses - depending on the the topic of the documentary.

Some documentaries have a link to a description of the documentary.
