Curriculum Night and The Cosby Show? A Beautiful Pairing!

South View Middle School will host our Curriculum Night on Thursday, January 16th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM.  It's based on an episode of The Cosby Show.

Who would have imagined that The Cosby Show would be the inspiration for a middle school Curriculum Night?  I was recently watching an intriguing episode of the show entitled Theo's Holiday.  In the episode, the Huxtables turn their brownstone into the real world in order to teach Theo about responsibility, money management, and a host of other skills.  He had to rent an apartment, buy furniture, and pay for food.

After finishing the show, I was stimulated to turn the situation into a brilliant concept for a Curriculum Night.  We could transform South View Middle School into South View Town Square in order to show our students how the curriculum truly connected to real ife.  

Here is a brief description of what we have planned for Thursday, January 16th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM. 
  • South View Middle School will be morphed into South View, NC.  The students will investigate the curriculum through rigorous real world scenarios with visits to South View Public Library, South View University, South View Health & Fitness, South View Credit Union, South View Acting Studio, South View Travel Agency, South View Snack Hut, and so much more!
I cannot wait to see how everything turns out!  It's going to be so much fun!  I'll keep you posted.
