Eight grade and Jr. High students presented The Prince and the Pauper to parents and families on Saturday, May 4th. MashaAllah they gave a phenomenal performance and entertained us all with their humor and creativity. A huge shout out goes to their teachers, Ms. Fawzia and Ms. Fatima and a whole group of students and staff who helped make the play a success.
Using biography in the classroom is both academically valid and a challenging way to encounter new worlds. For teachers, biography and autobiography provide initial entry to the study of periods of time and of places with which there may be little familiarity. For students, it is pleasurable, hardly like work, to learn history by reading the life stories of real people. It makes these people—whether they be monarchs, rulers or common folk who accomplished extraordinary feats –accessible and knowable.
Thank you Ms. Fawzia, Ms. Zainab, and Ms. Fatimah for a wonderful event and your creativity with our students.
Our Autumn Festival was an amazing affair. MashaAllah what a wonderful way to spend a Saturday!! Creative games and activities, delicious food, performances, and wonderful vendors made the day extraordinary.
