Celebrating Chinese Shadow Puppet Theater



For the second year in a row, a Teacher Mini-Grant was awarded for a wonderfully creative program that celebrates Chinese Hand Puppetry. John Witherspoon Middle School (JW) students in the seventh and eighth grade Mandarin classes worked with their Mandarin teachers and their Visual Arts teacher to create all of the elements needed to perform their own interpretations of this ancient, traditional art form.   Working in groups of two, the students designed, built, and then presented their hand puppet shows in conversational Mandarin in the JW auditorium.  A big thank you to Victoria Shen, Weefen Tsui, Claudia Luongo, and everyone involved in putting together this incredible program!
