In the documentary film Creating Safe Learning Spaces in Turbulent Times by Analiza Filion, five adolescent refugee youth retell their experiences with attending afterschool programs for literacy support. Students’ perceptions about safe learning environments are also highlighted in the film. Additional topics include immigration issues, language barriers, and other unique challenges faced by refugee youth. The documentary was created as a component of Filion’s dissertation study for San José State University’s Ed.D. program in Educational Leadership. Culturally responsive and trauma-informed teaching practices served as the conceptual lens for the exploratory study.
