Oceanside Middle School and Oceanside High School Students Collaborate on Mirror Project
In music, art and literature, mirrors are often metaphors for the person within but what the mirror reflects is a mix of fact and fiction, reality and perception. Jennifer Frasca and Laura Trongard, teachers at Oceanside High School who work together with the Integrated Program students, borrowed an idea they'd seen on Twitter to remind students that who we see in the mirror is a decision we can make. The high school students collaborated with OMS students from each 7th and 8th grade team to make it happen. Students decorated the mirrors, with the help of art teachers, sanding, gluing and painting, for the results you see here.
The Mirror Project now beautifies a heavily trafficked hallway at OMS with the message that how we choose to view ourselves and others can change the world.
