Check out Black River Middle School Student Work featured in VERMONT HUMANITIES COUNCIL 2015 RPEORT
VHC's 2015 Annual Report features a lead story on the work of BRMS 8th grade students in the winter and spring of 2014/2015.  The Vermont Read Book was Haroun and the Sea of Stories Salman Rushdie.  Students read, discussed and analyzed the text using the Facilitative Leadership model.  They then wrote and published a book of stories (written by students in 7-9) and hosted a Community Night in which they facilitated discussions with community members on the novel and issues related to it.  Many thanks to the Vermont Humanities Council and Ryan Newswanger (VHC Director of Communications) for their continued support.
