Weaving communities together
Learners at WIHS also learn to critically examine language and texts to become more discerning citizens in a global and social media world. This literacy approach (reading, writing, and dialogue) helps students learn about what holds historical significance and why.
By looking at whose perspectives are being uplifted, whose agenda is valued, and whose voices are left out, students develop an understanding of how issues of power affect their own lives, the land, and the broader community.
Through these learning processes, students develop critical consciousness and agency to solve problems and create change beyond the walls of the classroom.
