Thanks for contributing to our ongoing education..from RSU74

 From Lisa Savage..Literacy Coach
“Art teacher Richard Reichenbach invited  8th graders and the 1st graders at our school to visit the historic rock walls on his property in Industry. Here’s a photo of him speaking to students about what he knows of the carvings (probably by English soldiers) and the purpose of the rock walls.

We also had our student teacher Sikwani Dana who is Penobscot speak to students about how Native people would have likely viewed the demarcation of artificial boundaries and ownership of the land.

Needless to say, students will be writing about their experience with the wall.”

gs-school-boardschool-board

Thanks to the 5th graders and their teachers for presenting  content VTS to the RSU74 School Board.  As I told the teachers in the staff workshop and then  the  students in three schools  that VTS is a  pre -reading, vocabulary,  conversation  based  strategy that works across  the  curriculum. All you need to get started is a picture and three questions !
