Teachers: Elaine St. Jean & Noella Olson

click here to email teachers questions

Age/ Grades to include: 7-12 for the class, but students in grades 3-6 are encouraged to be in the production.

Course Description: Made to Play: Theater Skills Workshop The title is based on the belief that we are made in God the Creator’s image. We, as His children, are also inherently creative. We are made to release and reflect the goodness of His creation into our personal circumstances and in the widening circles of our lives. In order to create in excellence, one must be tuned-in to listening, collaboration, cooperation, skill-in-craft, excellence and the power of God’s love at the core. All of the above are first turned upward & inward toward the Holy Spirit and then outward into personal relationships and community. Finally, success in improvisation requires the ability to play; ‘good play’ releases excellence in the flow of creativity. There are also practical, beneficial elements that hold up what is deemed to be a “good play” in the context of the performing arts: self-confidence, collaboration, trust-building, communication, and problem-solving, just to name a few.

Curriculum: This class is made up of 3 components. 1. Introduction to theater: • Performance • Role play • Physicality • Character development • Rudiments of stage production including stage direction, blocking, lighting, etc. • Audition skills 2. Improvisation - Students will work with a partner and in groups to develop these specific skills: • Listening • Attuning and connecting to communicative flow • Flexibility • Adaptability • Creative thinking • Decision making • Acceptance of yourself and others • Willingness to play • Learning to accept failure 3. Stage a Dramatic Production In honor of authenticity and the role of improvisation in theater, we will watch for the collaborative personalities, talents, and interests of our students to inform our work in choosing a final production to be performed before an audience.

Amount of Homework: Minimal if at all, but TBD as the class dynamics progress. Students will need to memorize lines for a performance and are expected to collaborate in set design, costumes, props, etc. A final performance will carry a group signature.

Class Fee: No set fee. See next section.

Additional Supplies: Students may need to purchase a script <$10. Also, expenses for elements of the production such as materials for costumes, props, etc. We expect to “find”, borrow and create as much as possible.

Course Description: We will be reading books (that have a movie adaptation), writing summaries, writing book reviews, annotating, etc. The reading and writing will take place at home and class time will be used to discuss the book and homework. Watching the movie adaptations will be important to this class as we will compare and contrast the book verse the movie and character development. When it is time to watch the movies, we will plan a time outside of Co-op, we will have dinner and a movie evenings at either my home or Mrs. Teague’s. This time will be considered class time in order to get our hours in to receive a High School Literature (English) credit. We want this class to be fun, and the kids to look forward to reading the books, to gain skills in writing, but not be overly stressful either.

Amount of Homework: Seeing as this is a High School English class that meets in person 1x/week, my hope would be the children could spend 30-35 minutes per day (Monday-Thursday) to complete any assignments (including any reading and/or writing).

Class Fee: $25

Additional Supplies: Students would be responsible for having access to the class book, and a three ring binder. Also access to Google Classroom.

Age/ Grades to include: 5, 6,7 Grade

Course Description: Chapter Chats: grades 5-7 Let’s read together and have fun chatting about some good books! The aim of this class is to help students become engaged readers who ask good questions and make connections to themselves and the world around them. How will we do this? By reading and discussing a variety of engaging chapter books, aiming to complete each book over 4-5 weeks. Each class will include read aloud time and discussion through open ended questions. During read aloud, students will interact with the story through “sketch noting”, an open ended process in which students use words and images to record and track what’s happening in the story. Each student will need a 1” three ring binder, and something to draw with (markers, colored pencils, crayons). Parents will need to supply each book (approx. 5-6) by borrowing from the library, a digital site, or purchase. I will make sure each book is available in paperback, to keep costs low. To get through as many books as possible, students will be asked to read several chapters on their own each week, so “homework” time will be approximately one hour each week. Cost for class supplies (paper and occasional book related snacks)

Amount of Homework: approximately 1 hour

Class Fee: $10

Additional Supplies: 1" binder, drawing utensils of students choice (markers, colored pencils, crayons), the chapter books (approx 5-6 through the year) Books can be borrowed from the library or digital site or purchased
