About this Grantee

Ms. Calloway and Ms. Rae have created the interdisciplinary unit “China: Bridging the Wall” to increase students’ higher-level thinking skills and global understanding. In literature circles students read and discuss articles and stories about Chinese culture. Students also research origami and Chinese culture to create a PowerPoint presentation, and study the history of kite building to design and construct their own kites. Students showcase their work at an event for parents and their peers.
