In a cross-school learning experience, Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-grade students in Patricia Woods’ class attended a special workshop presentation with Allison Kane, a social studies teacher at Ward Melville High School. 

Expanding the students’ study on China’s history and political policy, Ms. Kane spoke in detail on the one-child policy that previously existed in the People’s Republic of China. The topic was connected to the class’s current read aloud of the book, “Among the Hidden.” Throughout the workshop the students had the opportunity to ask Ms. Kane questions about the book and the policy itself.
