Gaston College Music Teacher Judith Porter Honored

Lincoln Herald Staff

Gaston College music teacher Judith Porter was recently the recipient of a prestigious honor.

According to college spokeswoman Stephanie Michael Pickett, Porter was one of 12 exceptional teachers selected from applicants statewide to participate in a unique professional development and curriculum fellowship program. It’s offered by University of North Carolina World View in partnership with Carolina Performing Arts. The program received financial support from the Carolina Asia Center. The UNC World View Global Music Fellows Program provided an interdisciplinary professional learning experience designed to enhance fellows’ global competency skills and expand their teaching toolkits for integrating music into classroom instruction.

Porter’s projects were written for use in the community college music classroom, as Pickett continued. She added that the UNC World View Global Music Fellows Program culminated in the creation of teaching materials designed to integrate music from around the world into the kindergarten-through-12th-grade levels and community college classrooms. The teaching materials accompany the original album, Wu Fei and Abigail Washburn, released by Smithsonian Folkways in April.

Representing schools, districts and community colleges from North Carolina’s mountains to the sea, the UNC World View Global Music Fellows engaged in an intensive study of global music and strategies for integrating music across the curriculum through this yearlong interdisciplinary, collaborative learning experience. Program components included a recent introductory workshop on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill, featuring a lecture and demonstration of the guzheng (a kind of Chinese zither) by UNC Asian studies professor Dr. Li-ling Hsiao and a talk on Washburn and Wu Fei with Dr. Amanda Graham of Carolina Performing Arts.
