Join us as we, a third grade class of twenty-six students at Stedwick Elementary School, embark on a year-long adventure creating an original opera. Read about our weekly challenges and accomplishments as we move through the creative process using opera as an authentic vehicle to learn curriculum and 21st century skills.
We begin with the question, “What do I see?” This question will serve as a focus on the concept of perspective and will thread its way through all academic subjects and essential learning experiences throughout the year.
A first look in the mirror will launch this initiative as we think about who we are and what we have to offer. How do we see ourselves? How do others see us? How does this affect the relationships we will foster and build in the classroom, on the playground, at home and in our community?
Perhaps it is something about which we should all pause to think.
Stay tuned . . .
