Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a Reading/Technology Resource Teacher at River Terrace ES. I would love to bring to our school "1001 Black Inventions", a fast-moving 60 minute theatre program of the contributions of African Americans in the sciences. The program integrates academic subjects into a professional theatre production to instruct and inform. The presentation is interactive with the intent to motivate students through success stories of ingenious men and women. As an extension of the program, students will research, read, write, draw/color and post their work in classrooms and on bulletin boards. Our school population is 250 students, grades Head Start to sixth grade. The performance will take place on March 16, 2007.
