My students have had tremendous success learning through the arts. PS46k is an elementary school in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Area. PS46 serves about 500 children, PreK-5, with nearly 100% poverty levels. We were named one of New York's 100 most improved schools during the 2003/04 school year. Since I began my program of mathematics infused art instruction we have posted double digit gains in standardized mathematics test scores. Last year our school won the top citywide "Golden Apple" Award for our all school effort in community beautification. Our winning effort was an integrated project with the arts at the center. Students researched their neighborhood, published literature about Fort Greene/The Brooklyn Navy Yard, enhanced the school garden and performed community services. Our team of teachers wishes to continue developing our students' sense of self worth in their own community and in the larger world. This coming year we would like to expand our successful program to include puppet and clay animation. This art medium would use my children's natural storytelling and artistic abilities. We would write scripts (using our language skills and promoting ESL proficiency), build sets (using our math skills), create production teams (fostering cooperative skills), animate (using hands on arts experiences) and present our finished work. The animation experience would also help develop much needed critical thinking skills. To produce the animated films we would need at least 10 child friendly digital cameras to photograph the puppets/claymation and scenes from the neighborhood to use as background for the animation. We would also need memory sticks to keep our work stored. This project will begin to build art/technology parity for my students, who have very limited access to digital image making in or out of school.
