Poetry Lesson

Two of our EAL students, So-Eun and Maya, did a great job giving a poetry lesson to the 4th graders. They used Billy Collin’s poems because they are easy and funny. The fourth graders enjoyed their presentations and asked a lot of questions.

Harlem Renaissance Workshop Reflection

Before Spring Break, Ms. Standig’s 9th grade EAL students reflected on their blogs about the Apollo Theater workshop hosted here at Dwight. Our high school students participated in this workshop, where they learned about the issues and music of the 1960’s. They also collaborated in groups to make connections to issues in today’s society–through song and dance. Here are their thoughts about the workshop!
