DRAMA

We know that many students are kinesthetic learners who benefit from movement and a hands-on, physical approach to learning; children of this learning type are better able to master concepts through physical movement. Via the kinesthetic mediums of dance and drama, students acquire new skills, become more self confident with every public performance, and reinforce much of what they learn in the classroom. Dramatic performances are often based on literature concurrently being studied in the classroom. Fiction from the required reading curriculum is chosen and transformed from a book to a script, which is then performed by the students. The arts and academic curricula work in symbiotic conjunction, increasing the impact and efficacy of one another: this is the essence of a holistic education.

Drama is integrated into both the music lessons as well as an extension of the language arts and Global Cultural History program.
