Mrs. Thornburg's Humanities students wrote, produced, and directed a completely original evening event called "Coming to the table"
Under the mentorship of UNCC Professor Julia Murray, Ms. Thornburg's students explored what it means to be invited to a seat a the table, indeed what a table means and what diversity means through a multidimensional exploration of the theme of inclusion and exclusion in a community.
Part art, part activism and all Thornburg songs, dance, a studnet produced documentary video were all featured. Below is a trailer and a scene from the evening.
Kudos to Ms. Thornburg for letting her students drive the learning and to all her students for their creative work.
Celebrating Piedmont : a blog of Happy Happenings
"Celebrating Piedmont" logs only a small fraction of the learning magic the teachers of CMS' Piedmont Middle School, an IB World School. create daily. In that sense, it is authored by all the staff and students of Piedmont. It is curated by Ms. Gurthie who can be reached at the icons above. She'll be happy to brag about Piedmont's teachers and students any chance she gets! Please note this blog has only just begun and we have so much to show off! Come back again soon!
