Morse High School One-Act

In today’s the Forecaster newspaper there is an article called VHS makes bold return in Bath school’s 1-act play. It is a great review of the student play written by senior Sophie Mayo which will be performed in March called “Str8-2-Vid3o” (pronounced “Straight to Video”). Sophie has been involved with the 1-acts all four years of high school. Nine schools will compete on Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10. Sounds like this funny play will be one that you just might want to travel Morse High School in Bath to see.


Art Ideas for Teaching and Learning

February 20, 2013


Below are resources that can be used to connect visual art and literacy. If you have resources that you’ve used in your classroom please be sure and add them at the bottom of this post where it says ‘comment’.

  • ASCD SmartBrief includes the launch of Smithsonian Quests from Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies. I suggest you check it out, looks very interesting.
  • Using Fotoapp on ipads grade 3 students used 6 words to describe themselves that were incorporated into their self-portraits. You can see the artwork by clicking here.
  • The Painter’s Key is a website that contains Robert Genn Twice-Weekly Letter. It is a community of creative people that you might find inspirational. Take a look by clicking here.
  • On this vimeo you will find student illustrated idioms. Please click here.
  • Andy Warhol was the inspiration for these black and white photo portraits that are accompanied by the artists’ statements. Please click here.
  • Symbaloo – Chris Milliken highly recommends this site.

Some of these ideas are from the Teacher Art Exchange.
