PBL – Classical Lit Play Project 2017 – Claypit Performance

Leave a comment

This was our most difficult, but in many ways most successful, performance. It was last Thursday, so basically the last day of classes (not worth it to explain the ‘basically’) so the energy was pretty low. Because of scheduling vagaries at Claypit we were in a tech classroom, and the students were nervous about being […]

PBL – Classical Lit Play Project 2017 – Loker Performance

Leave a comment

We performed at Loker today. My students enjoyed having a theater; they incorporated the lights, both stage and house (to the delight / chagrin of the 4th graders?) and again did a nice job. And the Q & A, as usual, was excellent; the 4th graders had some great questions. I’ve included the performance is […]

It was a pretty interesting discussion, and one in which students were eager to participate. I’ll summarize, in no particular order, some of the things that came up below. Overall, a very positive response to […]

PBL – Classical Lit Play Project Survey Results

I administered the survey below to my Classical Lit class two classes after the performance (the class after we broke everything down). We’ve not discussed it much (had maybe 15 mins worth of discussion, which itself was interesting, so I won’t comment much on it yet. I will say, though, that it was pleasantly surprising […]

PBL – Classical Lit Play – Performances

So the project officially, I suppose, finished today. We performed the play; no more rehearsals, retakes, rewrites, descension into giggles (ok, maybe one or two of those), squabbling, painting, etc. We performed once in school, last block, to which I invited teachers to bring their classes, and which the superintendent and principal, as well as […]
