The Aerie Approach: Literary Voices

Students also learn how they can look, as if armed with X-ray vision, into the subterranean depth of their writing and see what has been hidden from them for so long. They are taught a technique for scene analysis, encouraged to slice and dice, like a Cubist painter, patterns of behavior that before were not always obvious." Robert Koppel, Aerie literary teacher

This Week

This Week at Wheeler, we congratulated Olivia Bush '20 for signing her Division 1 letter of intent to become a member of the Bucknell University field hockey program, and are seizing the moment to make our gift early for Wheeler's Day of Giving. We joined Model UN's Crisis Committee on our Instagram feed, and supported New Urban Arts through our Annual Wheeler Student Art Auction; we also got a glimpse inside the artist's studio of MS Art Teacher, Sarah Daughn. If you're looking for us, we're tucked away in a cozy corner of one of our Libraries for #NaNoWriMo to finish writing our memoir, finally.

Top Row (L-R) Wheeler's MS Jazz Band performed for and with RI Veterans, our 7th Annual Multicultural Performance Showcase, Second Row (L - R) AP Environmental Science braves the cold in the name of science! Wheeler's Cityside students continue to explore possibilities in the city of Providence, Bottom Row ( L-R) Our 1st graders enjoying some sunshine on a fall day, and our US History Topics in African History class went on a walking tour with the Slavery and Justice Center at Brown.
