During the month of January, A teaching artist from Dreamland Stage Company and Nantucket Television will work with students and teachers at Cyrus Peirce Middle School for our foundational skills series, We are Nantucket. The DSC teaching artist will guide the process from interview to archive as students gain the skills needed to conduct an interview with a subject, resulting in a detailed oral history of the life and times of members of the Nantucket Community.   Told through film and narration, the Nantucket Television teaching artist will guide the students through film and editing techniques. The completed, filmed interviews are then presented
