Amy has been interning at PS 132 with mentor Teaching Artists T. Scott Lilly and Elizabeth Leonard. In the third grade class, they put on a flash mob, wrote some community poems, and created a clapping orchestra piece.
Most Memorable TATIP Moment:
“My favorite moments have been seeing students’ engagement in the lessons. They get really excited and involved in the lessons. It’s really cool to see the impact of this kind of teaching style. When we were creating the flash mob, for example, the students were eagerly volunteering with their own ideas for gestures and dance moves based on what they wanted to see in their future community. Letting their voices be heard was clearly very important to them, and made them want to be involved throughout the creative process, from the initial brainstorming to the performance.”
