WITS has partnered with Cristo Rey Jesuit, HGO, Histrionix, and E-Line Media to bring the RING Project into classrooms. Through these partnerships and school based curriculum, Cristo Rey students are introduced to the power of myth and metaphor from the Norse myth and mythology that inspired Wagner’s Ring, films, and books which help nurture conversation about relevant topics – one grade per year, for full year project-based learning. 21st Century Gaming techniques are introduced to empower students to create myth, journeys and understanding of story, myth, and metaphor. Students enhance their critical thinking and writing skills, research abilities, and learn effective communication skills through speaking, presenting, writing, point of view, gaming, art, and music. Students utilize connections formed through art, music, metaphor, and myth to use as creative tools to express dynamic concepts while considering their own personal narrative and their own contribution to their community.
Today, the RING Project partners will celebrate the collaboration with readings, musical performances, and the top 5 games will be announced!
