Bringing high quality programs to schools means working with exceptional teachers and educators. This week we reached out to Gerald Chaney (pictured above on the left) at the Young Women's Leadership Charter School to get his perspective on the power of The Viola Project in the classroom.
TVP: What made you interested in bringing The Viola Project into your classroom?
GC: I was interested in the Drama and Performing Arts class students being exposed to more acting activities and experiences that build their public speaking confidence.
TVP: How has The Viola Project supported the learning goals of your classroom?
GC: Since The Viola Project in-class workshops began, I have noticed that our scholars readily read-aloud assignments and participate in and lead group discussions.
TVP: What is the best thing about having The Viola Project at the Young Women's Leadership Charter School?
GC: Our Scholars enjoy every activity that Skyler, Evey, and Lexi lead. The students look forward to connecting/tying in The Viola Project themes, ideas, and weekly lessons into other content area lessons.
TVP: Anything else you'd like to add?
We are thankful to Gerald for introducing us to his 65 amazing students and to our incredible donors and as well as the Arbonne Foundation, without whom this collaboration would not be possible.
Here's to continued success!
