This select group of 6-8th grade students attended with me today. During this visit the students were able to talk one-on-one with Dr. Birks about topics such as the strengths of New Haven Public Schools, the areas of growth, and what they would do if they were superintendent of New Haven Public Schools. Our students enjoyed our morning and being able to meet with and discuss these topics with other schools and students in the district.
As part of a global studies initiative, in affiliation with Yale's Gilder-Lehrman Center for Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition, Mrs. Mullins' Room 204 Shining Stars are working with South African instructors Mam Mary Khuduge and her students to learn more about one another's culture and past histories. Students across continents have been inspired to dig deeper into one another's cultures. They are working on team projects and sharing all they learn with one another. Pictured in the videoclip, our third graders have learned the significance of the South African National Anthem and have mastered singing the first stanza in isiZulu, a language that was once banned in South Africa during the country's Apartheid era. They were elated to receive a response from their South African cohorts, who [featured here] responded in English, Afrikaans, isiZulu, and Portuguese.
