“I’m Gonna Be Myself” is a featured project of ForWords Literacy Lab and premiered at the Rafael Theatre in November, 2013. This documentary, created by thirty middle school and high school students, offers the viewer the opportunity to engage in issues of gender, culture, and individuality.

Student movie-makers experienced a variety of literacies in the creation of this engaging movie including Communication Literacy (research, writing, interviewing, discussing), Digital Technology Literacy, Information Literacy, Visual and Arts Literacy, and Historical/Cultural Literacy.
