Chesapeake Bay Foundation - Save the Bay: McDonogh Teacher Celebrates the Bay Through Song [cached]

Educational field trips with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) proved more than just inspirational to Jon Aaron, middle school teacher at McDonogh School in Owens Mills.They were musical.And Aaron couldn't let that music go unheard.For the past two years, Aaron worked with students, alumni, and colleagues at the school to create Chesapeake Dream, a musical performed by his students that highlights the serious health issues faced by the Bay and its estuaries.

"It's really an accumulation of ten years of trips with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation," says Aaron about the musical's basis."My first trip was to Port Isobel where I met Captain Charles, and I've been there three times.I've also been to Clagett Farm, Fox Island, and Smith Island over the years.As a teacher, I was there to be with the kids, but the bonus was learning about the Bay."
So why a musical?"I direct shows, I like to write poetry, and I love word play," says Aaron."I just started jotting down lyrics and got a few tunes in my head.In 2004, it was just one of those things where we said 'Hey!We need to just dive in and do it!"A middle-school English and drama teacher, Aaron says it was often hard to get age-appropriate subject material for his students."I'm a middle-school guy," says Aaron.
"Critters are divided to embody the conflict," says Aaron, "but obviously the critters are in it together.The dramatic license is that one is supporting CBF, towing the line saying 'Teach the kids, teach the kids, teach the kids,' while the other one says 'Teach them?Another slogan?Save the Bay?You know, they plant SAVs here then go home to their SUVs.'"
"The show has always felt to me as a natural outgrowth of my sensory experiences on the Bay coupled with an interest in the literary quality of conflicts between the millions of us who live by the bay and love the bay yet who daily inflict the bay with our ways of life, " says Aaron.
"My goals for Chesapeake Dream are twofold," says Aaron."Provide an appropriate performance vehicle for kids, and to get the word out, thinking about 'How will you use it?Use it or abuse it.' Those are questions individuals have to face and that everything living in the watershed has to deal with."He says he hopes other schools will see Chesapeake Dream, perform it "and make a contribution to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in the end."
