BRIDGE Featured in D&C

The BRIDGE program linking Colleges students studying in Senegal with Anne Bergstrom's third-grade class was featured in an article titled “Pupils visit Senegal virtually” in the Nov. 19 Democrat and Chronicle.

Professors Scott Brophy and Lilian Sherman spent several days in Senegal earlier this month as part of the project. The program has since expanded to include other Finger Lakes-region schools and other nations, such as Japan and Vietnam, said James MaKinster, an assistant professor of education. And the material is not strictly about different cultures; Senegal is being woven into the third-graders’ lessons on everything from art to math.
