I worked with several organization to devlop 11 "trunks" for teacher
check out on culture in the world they contained, flags, travel posters,
historical, cultural, and geographic materials, a video of an artsts from
that country interacting with USA students from our local( we used a Mi
Council for the Arts Grant to bring the ethno-artist to train students,
they apprenticed a locale artist with siilar skills(Gautemualian wever
with local weavers guild) . It also includes a video cassette of music, a
video and directions for a dance. A story book of stories form the
country at several different grade levels. It is working at many ages.
But perhaps a high school class would learn and enjoy creating a box for
others. It would certainly get them to understand DBAE concepts and
learn the import of the arts in a culture.
