Professor Imaginoria (the teacher, Jessica Gray, who teaches in costume & in character) will welcome students into The Imaginorium Wizarding Academy, a virtual Wizarding School of drama on The Rainbow Path. When students join the class they will be asked to take a "sorting quiz," and in their first class they will be sorted into one of our unique houses: Waverider (with the quality of peace, the color blue, and the mascot of the narwhal), Windhorse (with the quality of love, color green, and...
#TH:Cr1.1 Anchor Standard: Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work. TH:Cr1.1.3 a. Create roles, imagined worlds, and improvised stories in a drama/theatre work. b. Imagine and articulate ideas for costumes, props and sets for the environment and characters in a drama/theatre work. c.

The plays are written specifically with the following Social Emotional Goals in mind: 1. Self-Awareness The ability to recognize one’s own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence behavior and to assess one’s strengths and limitations. 1A Individual demonstrates an understanding of one’s emotions. 1B Individual identifies when help is needed and who can provide it. 1D Individual demonstrates knowledge of their own personal strengths, cultural and linguistic assets, and aspirations. 2. Self-Management The ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations and to set and work toward personal and academic goals. 2A Individual demonstrates the skills to manage one’s emotions, thoughts, impulses and stress in constructive ways.
Jessica Gray earned a PhD in theatre from Louisiana State University, her MA in theatre from Florida State University, and her BA in theatre from the University of NC. She has been working with children and theatre for more than 20 years. She is the Artistic & Education Director The Imaginorium, which offers virtual summer and school break programs in Providence, Rhode Island (which they call "story-based theatre programs with a side of STEAM"). These camps are immersive role-playing opportunities for children to experience stories in a complete theatrical environment.
Sometimes students want to make a prop or costume or continue writing outside of class. The amount of time a student spends on them will be completely up to them.
Occasionally we may choose to make props or costumes. If we do, a suggested supply list will be sent to parents at least a week in advance. Students should also BYOW (bring your own wand) and dress in costume if possible to enhance the magic, but this is optional, of course. Also, I strongly recommend you get a copy of "Imagine the Key" Book One of the the Rainbow Path" , https://www.amazon.com/Imagine-Key-Rainbow-Path-Book/dp/B09RGY5FJ5/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1643310028&sr=8-2 OR https://books2read.com/u/brwQvE
The teacher will be paying close attention to learner participation through physical and verbal cues, interaction, and will ask direct questions to determine whether or not there is both comprehension and interest in a particular activity. Assessment will be ongoing.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
While our Wizard Academy has many similarities to those in the Harry Potter books, the class will include less HP content moving forward because of the author’s public stance on transgender issues. We are focused much more on the Rainbow Path.
I will provide links to the plays in digital form, but if students want to buy printed versions, they are available. The first play we are doing is available here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B5NP9XH3/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_2JRQ11BW8HCM860D7534 The other plays are available here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09VWN1FY7/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_9ZBZVBDZ8T3D6GWY26MV And the novel "Imagine the Key" by Iris Imaginoria - https://books2read.com/u/brwQvE or https://www.amazon.com/Imagine-Key-Rainbow-Path-Book/dp/B09RGY5FJ5/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1643310028&sr=8-2
