The SAND 7th graders made the trip across town to CPBN on February 16. At CPBN the students rotated through three areas; either on stage being interviewed presenting their curriculum based videos, working and job shadowing professional camera operators, stage managers, audio and television directors, or as members of the studio audience. Their teachers, Marcus Jennings, Felicita Rosario and Brittany Wilson were also interviewed.
Portions of this town hall meeting were featured in the televised four-part documentary series, Media is Magic: The SAND Media Enrichment Program that aired on CPTV in July.
In this first town hall meeting, the SAND 7th graders created curriculum based content that explained their English, math, science and social studies lessons as experienced by the characters in the book “Touching Spirit Bear,” by Ben Mikaelsen.
