We're back and better than ever! Well...we're different! You know that place outside of Dalton Hall with the awesome artwork? Perhaps you know it best as "where we store MacBeth stuff sometimes", or better yet a failed snoozing corner? Well, there's a whole new team of people running it.
Under the guidance of Ms. Pantano, and Gallery Head Heesoo Kwon (Gr 12) a team has been assembled of students in charge of all things gallery- exhibitions, interviews, reviews, curation etc... These students are in charge of writing reviews, interviewing student and visiting artists, and creating videos and promotions for gallery events. Soon these 5 skilled CDS students will begin transitioning into the curitora process where they will work to design, and hang exhibitions!

Please check out the CDS Gallery website for upcoming exhibits, and visit the News and Review section for all interviews and summaries!

Term two in 12th grade English is all about communication skills, and the 12th graders recently had their first “speech challenge,” reading to CDS First Program students. In order to succeed at this challenge, the students had to practice reading many times, making sure they used their voices to show emotion and used gestures to make the story more entertaining. They also asked questions to keep the First Program students involved throughout the story. The result? The FP students absolutely loved being read to by their new 12th grade friends, and I think the 12th graders enjoyed themselves as well, while also working on their communication skills.
The students in Spanish IV produced a magazine for their project. The aim was to write travel articles that promote Sustainable Tourism in places they have visited by suggesting an alternate way of touring these places.
Some of the suggestions include how to maintain the profits generated by tourism in the the economy of the locals, help protect and maintain the environment and culture.
They had to use the grammar point introduced which was the use of the past in narratives as well as the conventions of a travel article.
Renaissance Rap/Poetry Battles
By Jacob Spangler
Throughout term one the 10th grade World History II classes worked diligently learning about the Middle Ages through the Renaissance time periods. Each student had multiple checkpoints that they had to accomplish to successfully create their final product for their project based learning (PBL) this term. The students persistence and research ability led to some pretty interesting final products.
Term one’s PBL final product was in the form of a rap/poetry battle. Each student picked a famous artist, architect, or writer from the Renaissance time period and researched their life ranging from their accomplishments, successes or lack thereof. Once they completed their research they worked together with another classmate to organize their own one on one rap/poetry battles. Overall the students did a great job and were able to showcase their skills.
Overall the PBL was a success and the students had fun with the battles and hopefully have created a memory that will last a lifetime. Each battle was filmed for reference and a final short mix clip was produced by volunteers from each class. Please see the links provided below to see a short video for each class.

"Dear CDS Artists,
It's only one week away, Your bus permission slip is due Monday, October 30th!
On Sunday, November 5th Yongsan International School (YISS) will be hosting the PREVIEW International Portfolio Review Forum for high school art students.
At this event representatives from over fifteen of the top art and design universities in the US (Parsons, CalArts, MICA, etc…) and Europe will be visiting Korea to review the portfolios of high school students.
This event strongly recommended for any high school students who are interested in pursuing art, architecture, or design. Students have the opportunity to bring portfolios of their best and most recent artwork to be reviewed and discussed with representatives. Not only is is an excellent opportunity to meet and speak with these universities directly, but it is a valuable experience for any young artist to receive critical feedback on their work.
A one-way bus will depart CDS at 10:00am to take students directly to YISS. Taking the bus is optional, and requires a permission slip to be filled out (found below). Students who live in Seoul may choose to head directly to YISS as it is not required to come to CDS first. Students must take their own transportation home from YISS, as there will not be a bus in the evening. This permission

If you are interested in attending the event, please follow through on the procedures below:
Our MAP testing for Fall is now complete and the results are now in. Individual results will be issued to students over the next week but the general results follow the pattern of the last 2 years and indicate that we do extremely well in Math. We are seen to struggle with reading as we enter 9th grade but excel by the time we finish 10th grade. In Language Use we are progressing but there is still room for improvement, hopefully this years use of "no red ink" will aid students with their use of English.
Next week on Friday 3rd November we will be holding our first parent teacher conference of the year. The conferences will take place at school in the teacher's’ classroom. You may choose to book up to three appointments with teachers. The bookings can be made below by following the links.
