Interlaced themes include family, stealing, and change in this Newbery Medal Wining tale, A Single Shard. The story follows an orphan boy living in a twelfth-century Korean potter’s village. Since an early age, Tree-ear has lived under a bridge, content with the company of his older friend, Crane-man. But one-day Tree-ear watches Min creating beautiful pottery and dreams of becoming a potter himself. Soon Tree-ear begins an apprenticeship with Min that culminates in the boy taking a journey to the king’s court to show his master’s pottery. This difficult and dangerous journey will change Tree-ear’s life forever.

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.
