Curriculum Come To Life in Two Chatham County Elementary Schools


Artists-in-Schools: Curriculum Come to Life in Two Chatham County Elementary Schools
History, math, science – sometimes everyday curriculum can be difficult to grasp for elementary school students. The concept seems unfamiliar or too far removed from everyday life to grasp. But when a student becomes an integral part of dissecting and reconstructing it in a different way, the ability to connect with curriculum concepts is more within reach. This is the idea behind two recent Chatham Arts Council Artists-in-Schools theater residencies with EbzB Productions, founded by Serena Ebhardt and David zum Brunnen. The residencies took place at Pittsboro Elementary School and Bonlee School, and proved to be successful tools in bringing history, math, science, language, and dramatic arts curriculum to life. “This program provides a great way to reach kids who need other ways to learn – they need movement,” said Serena Ebhardt,…

War Bonds. Why We Do It.

June 17, 2019
Thank You Very Much

Dear EBZB Productions:
It is Monday morning, and I'm still thinking about the “War Bonds” play we saw Saturday night at the Pal Theater. It was great, and I have a number of areas of thanks I want to cover with you.
First, thank you for the entertainment you provided. Cheryl and I have become set in a routine that usually involves a TV screen and some sort of snack on Saturday nights. You provided us with an opportunity to get out of the house and do something productive with our minds and bodies. It was refreshing.
Second, thank you for the content of the play. Those who fought in WWII are often referred to as “the greatest generation", and it is a title that they rightly earned. To think that millions of men and women put down their plows and picked up their arms to defend this country after not one, but three nations declared war with us is amazing. I do not feel we can muster that kind of patriotism among our draftable youth today. The sa…

Technology For The Greater Good - Bonlee Elementary Residency

"Technology is the pursuit of life by means other than life."   -Bernard Stiegler

We are having fun at Bonlee Elementary School in Chatham County, North Carolina this week!  

Over the past few months, the fifth grade students have interviewed Mayor John Grimes of Siler City and Mayor Cindy Perry of Pittsboro for their thoughts on how technology has changed the county.  

The students transcribed those interviews to create a script over the past week. We also incorporated technology into the artistic process, using it to record interviews, type the script, create projections, amplify the actors, and coordinate the choreography. We discovered that technology is everywhere. We discovered that not all technology is digital.  We discovered that sometimes it is difficult to know whether technology rules over us or we rule over technology.

Throughout this process, students have learned that working on assembly lines, typing letters, processing water from a chicken plant and launching a r…
