About this Grantee

To increase the technology skills of their students, Ms. Factory, Ms. Swyden, and Ms. Taylor develop “Time Travel with a Theatrical and Technological Twist.” In this multidisciplinary project, the students use digital film to explore a historical theme. After researching a historical era, students write a script, design a screenplay, and stage a historically accurate depiction of that era. Students also host a Shakespeare Festival, in which they perform two plays for the school and community.
