The “Be Aware News Team,” comprised of eighth graders at Beaufort Middle School, chose Citizen’s Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA) as the subject of its latest documentary video. The “exploratory class,” led by teacher Jan Paris, incorporates a variety of educational experiences while learning about and communicating the needs of worthy causes locally and internationally.
Students researched the problem of domestic violence and how it is addressed by CODA and then scripted and shot a video which aired on the school’s “Morning News.”
Additionally, the news team independently organized, auditioned for, publicized and coordinated a juried talent show which raised money for CODA.
CODA extends thanks to the aware, creative and committed students who are working to end domestic violence in our community.
