This has been a great week for grade 6 and 8 Theatre Arts classes! The Grade 6 students started their new unit called “Is Anybody Out There…?” which focuses on connecting with an audience. Students completed a post-it activity highlighting the differences and similarities between movies and live performances, and also started learning about how to create an effective tableau.
The grade 8 Theatre class has continued learning about improv this week. We discussed improv techniques and the dos and don’ts of improv scenes. Students practiced these skills by playing improv games like Sound Effects and Freeze!
