UE Residency Week Begins

FRIDAY, 11.9.18 — FRIDAY,11.16.18

The UE curriculum includes a sustained and in-depth study of one of the world’s ancient cultures that begins with a week-long Residency and culminates in the Cultural Fair. This long-term project develops students’ ability to research and work independently, and refines their written and oral communication skills.  Working individually or in pairs, students choose a topic to further research outside of class.

This year the Upper Elementary classes are studying Ancient India and will spend the week working on a performance written by former WMS parent, Lisa Worth Huber, who sampled seminal tales of India such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Students will work with visiting artist, Rachna Agrawal who is a dancer, singer, artist and published author.
