In this immersive mystery story, students join a pirate crew and use creativity, storytelling, acting and drawing to help a pirate search for her missing parrot and treasure.

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 their 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.  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!
Something to draw on and with (for example, paper and crayons).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
