The use of character development and the use of foreshadowing in written works are explored in Breath, the story of the Pied Piper of Hamlin in medieval Germany. The author presents an explanation for the events of June 26, 1284, through the eyes of Salz, a young boy afflicted with cystic fibrosis. The town of Hamlin is infested with rats, and the animals and people are getting sick and dying. Salz tries to figure out why the people are getting sick by applying logical thinking strategies he is learning from his education with Pater Frederick. At the same time, he is beginning to struggle with some of the pagan beliefs and practices of a coven to which he and his grandmother belong.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
