Reading Miss Carden’s reading program is built on the following foundational elements: phonetic word attack skills, understanding of grammatical construction, keyword and title, vocabulary development, mental imagery, rhythm, and critical thinking. The students further develop these skills in their study of the classics. Daily attention is given to sequence, fluency, recall, categories, and organization of thought. Phonetically, these are closely integrated with the spelling sequence and grammatically integrated with the language work. This unity builds understanding, self-confidence, security, and success. At every grade level the reading and literature books combine to introduce approximately 2000 vocabulary words each year. In order to strengthen both vocabulary and comprehension, Carden Academy assigns independent reading homework daily, beginning in the Second Grade, as well as required Summer Reading in grades 4-8. Miss Carden’s ultimate goal was to teach a command of the language! Throughout the program emphasis is placed on thinking, enjoyment, and uplifting attitudes and viewpoints. www.CardenAcademyHB.com.

This was my very first independent film completed in 1989. It was done on unregistered typing paper and shot originally on 16mm film. It also went on to win a Student Academy Award, a Focus Film award, and be included in the Spike and Mike Festival of Animation, Expanded Entertainments Animation Celebration, and many independent animation festivals. It was completed while taking animation classes at De Anza College in Cuptertino California.
