Class Experience

Students will develop arts skills, social skills and confidence as they invent and inhabit an "imaginary elsewhere" in dramatic play.  Arts skills include using our bodies and faces to transform into a character, expressing original ideas through storytelling, drawing, acting, singing and dancing.
This class is also aligned with age-appropriate science learning concepts, such as "Scientists ask questions," "Scientists base their ideas on evidence from the natural world," and "Scientists share their ideas with each other."
I love guiding young learners as they discover the power of their imaginations and the possibilities creative drama holds.  There is such freedom in using this art form, in which no idea is wrong, and many roads lead to the solutions we seek.  It is also a fabulous opportunity to integrate science and literature with multiple art forms.  I have been a creative drama teacher for almost 30 years, and an actor and playwright for even longer.  In recent years I have discovered that this type of learning lends itself wonderfully to an interactive online learning experience.  My performing arts skills and teaching experience blossom together joyously as I create these creative drama classes. I look forward to sharing the experience with you!
Optional homework in preparation for class # 2:  Draw a picture of an animal you imagine we will meet as we climb the high hill on the island. Maybe you can even find out what the footprint of the animal looks like, and include that in your drawing.  There will be an opportunity to share your drawing with your classmates at the beginning of class #2.

Optional homework in preparation for class #3:  Do a little research on volcanoes.  You could read about volcanoes in a book, or try watching this National Geographic Kids video:   Write down one fact you have learned about volcanoes to read to your friends or draw a picture to remind you of one interesting fact to share with your friends.

Optional homework in preparation for class # 4:  Choreograph (make up the movements for) a dance to teach your friends that we could perform for Puddles the Poodle to help her understand we want to help her and be her friend.  Hint: The dance should should be short and simple enough for your friends to remember, and include no more than three different kinds of movements.
Please have supplies on hand for your student to write and/or draw during our class time.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
