Teaching Artist Derek Munson traveled to Bolivar where he spent time with this fabulous group of fourth graders. They adapted the poetry of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky and created a play called The Fantastical World of Imagination Alley. They spent time on the basics of stage movement, beginning acting techniques, and tableau staging. After Derek left, their teacher continued the work until a final presentation was ready to share with the rest of the school.
Here are just a few of the GLCEs and Common Core standards they focused on:
Performing - participate in a performance for a class or invaded audience
Script Writing - Identify symbol and scene
Design - Apply technical theatre elements such as setting, sound, properties, lighting, costumes, or makeup
