CLARK — Students in Christine Cemelli’s fourth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark celebrated Columbus Day with a Readers Workshop. The students did a Readers Theatre to learn about Columbus and the struggles he faced when he traveled to the new world. After the students performed the play, Cemelli read the story Encounter by Jane Yolen, which talks about Christopher Columbus through a young Native American boy’s eyes. The class discussed the different point of views and learned about the background history of the New World. (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
