Songwriting Through Youth Literature Education -- STYLE -- sent two teaching artists to inspire students on March 18, 19, and 20. "Mr. B." and Tiffany Wilson read Thunder Boy, Jr. Students responded to guided questions about the story, and their words then were shaped into a different original song. Each group then recorded and their songs can now be heard at learningwithstyle.com or on the Gilbert Library Homepage. Every Gilbert student contributed, including those in our 6 autism classrooms. The artists also performed up-close-and-personal for each group. Creativity, collaboration, coolness! Thank you, Gilbert PTA!
