For the workshop today we are in the middle of a fabulous presentation by Kim Gavin, Dan Fitzsimmons, and Jaime Rowlyk of William Cramp Elementary School. They are discussing lessons learned, strategies used, and classroom tips gathered during their first year of LTP. For our new teachers involved in the program this year, information and resources like these are invaluable.
The tips and work they shared with the group will be available under the “Teaching Tools” section of this blog by the end of the week.
I just received images from Phillip at North 5th Street of our LTP banners now OFFICIALLY installed along North 5th Street, just north and south of Olney Avenue. If you are in the area and get a chance to see them please snap a photo to share with us, or let us know your thoughts!
We are anxiously awaiting pictures to share, and would like to again thank North 5th Street for all their work to make the FIRST community installation of work by students participating in LTP happen in the FIRST year of the program in Philadelphia!
Check out Phillip Green from North Fifth Street Revitalization Project holding up a banner of Kamiyah Gray’s work as part of the first community installation of photographs and writing by select students in Learning Through Photography at Moore!
Stayed tuned for information about the installation and reception!
Last week Aditi Roy of NBC Philadelphia visited the classroom of Jaime Rowlyk, fifth grade teacher at William Cramp Elementary, as part of their segment Teacher Says. She spoke with Jaime and some of her students who participated in LTP this year, and stopped by The Galleries as well for a few clips of our current exhibition and pending publication.
The segment is very powerful and inspirational, and a wonderful example of how LTP has already begun to impact these students in only the first few months of the project, and hopefully will continue to do so in the future.
In partnership with the North Fifth Street Revitalization Project (NFSRP), located near 5th and Olney, we are proud to announce that the first community-installation of work by students participating in Learning Through Photography at Moore will commence this July!
Representatives from NFSRP selected 12 works to introduce Learning Through Photography at Moore in the community surrounding three of our five inaugural schools: Nueva Esperanza H.S., Grover Washington, Jr. M.S. and William Cramp Elementary School.
This is only the first in what we hope will be a continued effort to place student work created as part of LTP in ALL communities that surround our participating schools.
Congratulations to these students and stayed tuned for details about a small ceremony to mark the unveiling in late July!!
Exciting news…Channel 10 was here this morning filming clips of our exhibition!
Yesterday they visited the classroom of Jaime Rowlyk, 5th grade teacher at William Cramp Elementary School and interviewed a few of her students who participated in LTP. Stayed tuned for updates about our air date and time!
