Students are currently writing scenes and/or monologues for our "Teen Issues" Unit.6th Graders: We're now up and running on Google Classroom too! If you missed your invitation, please email me here. (DISCLAIMER: While I will do my best to provide information and links pertaining to theatre, it will be impossible to replicate the experience students have in Drama class, which is 90% based on in-person social interaction. I use a wide variety of interactive games, skits, and improvisations which help students develop a greater self-confidence and build their social skills.) Through GC students will be given opportunities to write their own plays as well as to watch theatre online.ALL students who are interested in learning more about the history of theater can check out this YouTube series called "Crash Course Theater", which has 49 episodes spanning from Greek Drama all the way to modern Broadway musicals: Crash Course Theater
