Dolton School District 149 has a partnership with Columbia College and Dr. Jeff Spitz, professor for Documentary, Cinema Art and Science. On Friday, November 22, 2013 the our 8th grade students had the awesome opportunity to visit Columbia College of Chicago.
The students were exposed to media arts education which is a big part of our story at C.C.A. Our goal is to integrate media arts into our classrooms and we look forward to continuing this process with Dr. Spitz and his team from Columbia.
All of the work our students are doing with Columbia is based on project based learning: student inquiry, research, writing, re-writing, reading, planning and collaborating on a shared project.
The Columbia College students appreciated the opportunity to introduce our students to Columbia’s brand of creative communications.
