REALM School at West Berkeley...Meet Ms.Moody
Thank you for all your support as we reach our halfway mark on our Kickstarter campaign and the halfway mark of our mural project. Today, we added colors to the wall! We are halfway there! Please continue to let other people know about our campaign so that we can reach our goal and complete the Fresh Start Mural! We have only 8 days left to go!
Now that you have gotten to know the True Colors student muralists from previous updates, we also want to introduce you to our partner site, REALM Charter School in West Berkeley. Our partnership with REALM School is guided by their philosophy of providing: " a project-based, technology-rich learning environmentthat promotes critical and socially responsive perspectives. This means that students will learn to think about the world as a set of interconnected systems that can be affected through rigorous studies and action. Students will navigate and create complex information networks, virtual worlds, and immersive learning environments by utilizing emerging technologies. Moreover, through culturally relevant instruction and curricula, students will recognize and own theirability to shape our world and to better humanity".
"Fresh Start" mural Project with REALM involves the students and thecommunity to navigate complex information utilizing emerging technologies. The audience not only view the mural, but also play with the design that becomes an actual living experience. Our collaboration with REALM School has been very exciting and inspiring. The exchange of information and skills has embodied a true sense of the power of collaboration. True Colors Mural Project and REALM School is providing West Berkeley neighborhood a gift of a high quality,enduring and meaningful mural- and an opportunity to educate the community about the challenges and solutions to support ecological sustainability and social justice in our neighborhoods.
To give you a closer look, we bring you Ms. Moody!, our backer and geometry teacher at REALM. She talks about why everyone one should support this project and how this project has benefitted the students at REALM.
