More than 100 identified 3rd-5th-grade high ability students toured the Muhammad Ali Center and took in the world premier of And in this Corner…. Cassius Clay. In the next few weeks, students will respond to this experience in discussion, art, and blogging. The study of Connections: Respect will conclude with a seminar to the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in March. This year-long study was made possible by the Armstrong Gift for High Ability, the Greater Clark Education Foundation Grant, the Jeffersonville Rotary Club Foundation Grant, and the Fund for the Arts TAG.
