First day of school went without a hitch: kids found their classes, teachers delivered content, and administrators did some walk-throughs.
Today we are going to watch a clip from War Horse that hits home the concept of collaboration. [Lucky me, I am going to see it in San Francisco this weekend!] Working together is running theme throughout the school year in our theatre class, and it begins by learning someone’s name. In two weeks, theatre students take a test on each others’ names. Hey, you can’t collaborate with folks and continue to call them, “Hey you,” in March…
In addition to the collaboration message, students will do a wee bit of pantomiming. Oh, and letting students know about auditions. More info here.
