Photos: Dramatic exercises at Bate Middle

Andrew Harris visited Bate Middle School Friday to lead students in dramatic exercises.

Harris was provided to Bate through the Bearing Witness educational program. It is Bate’s second year participating in the program, which is made possible through a grant from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence.

Last year, a Holocaust survivor visited Bate as part of the program and shared his story with students. This year, students will get to visit the Holocaust Museum in Cincinnati.

Teacher Linda Cottle said Friday’s dramatic exercises were designed to help students go beyond just reading words in a book and feel what the words describe.
