Fifty students in grades 4-8 at Da Vinci Academy will participate in learning to play Indonesian gamelan music and perform Indonesian traditional dance; an audience of at least 100 will attend their final-day sharing performance.Da Vinci teachers will be involved in residency planning so as to integrate study of various aspects of Indonesian culture into the broader curriculum. Post-residency discussion and written surveys will determine how well this objective has been accomplished. Students will maintain a journal through the residency period, describing their experiences and recording their personal reactions to it. A post-performance discussion will give opportunity for oral responses.
Eighty five students in grades 7-8 achieved enough competence in performing Indonesian music and/or dance to share this accomplishment in an informal program for the school and parents, and gained an expanded cultural awareness of two art forms and Indonesian traditions and life styles.
