Instead of just talking about Europe in their social studies and language arts classes, Ms. Kay and Ms. McCarthy took their students there to experience the continent first hand. They chaperoned a guided tour to England and France. Here are a few highlights of the trip. Not only were there big lessons learned, but students also got a chance to make connections between history and cultures and to be middle schoolers on a whole other continent.
If you still need a reason to appreciate the gift travel is for a young mind (or an old mind) Check out Annie Murphy Paul's recent writings on how travel changes people and makes them more creative.
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!
