Mount Desert Island High School

Once Upon A Mattress

Art teacher, Charlie Johnson emailed me to tell that he enjoyed reading the piece Kim Murphy wrote for the program of Camden Hills Regional High School “Once Upon A Mattress” performance. He also informed me that Mount Desert Island High School students performed the same musical this fall and how the interests of over 50 students involved came together.

Thank you Charlie for your short description:

The fall musical at Mount Desert Island High School was a beautiful thing to behold, but the real beauty for arts education was the collaboration and hard work that went on behind the scenes. The music students who comprise the pit orchestra, the dance students who choreograph and share their abilities with others, the visual arts students who design, construct and paint the sets and of course the theater students who learn their lines and love to play before a live audience all work together. The fall musicals that take place around the state are a true collaboration of all the arts disciplines and of arts eduction at its best.”

Teachers’ Views on Technology in the Classroom

The New York Times asked teachers to submit videos showing how they use technology in their classrooms and of course, have posted some of the videos which you can view by clicking here. You can read the related article which is available at the page with the videos. I suggest you watch the video with art teacher Audrey Miller from Oceanside High School in New York.
