Experience of Isolation

Cocoon is worth the watch for educators, students and families. The film portrays the experience of isolation from the perspective of young people. It could be a strong text to include in an inquiry about belonging, connection, resilience or relationships. Probably more suitable for upper elementary aged students.

The film Cocoon documents the early months of the pandemic told through the perspective of students, ages 4 to 17, living in their homes in Portland, Oregon. The film explores students' varying points of view about the pandemic on issues including job loss, health concerns, and school changes. As students express their fears and insecurities, they also share what they have come to appreciate and what they miss the most—their friends and human connection. (Global Oneness Project)
