“This grant will make it possible for us to enhance our Arts program,” said school administrator Larry Schmoekel.
The school received a similar grant last year and used a portion of the funds for an interesting learning project for students.
“Last year, after our students finished reading a particular book, we went to a movie and also a musical play – both adaptations of the book.”
“This way we were able to try to figure out why the makers of the movie and play did things the way they did, and compare that with our imaginative view of what the words said to us,” Schmoekel said. He said this inspired imaginative dialog between the students when comparing three versions of what was, essentially, the same story.
