5th Graders Explore Drama in Literature and Radio Shows in Music Classes as Part of Learning Collaboration Unit
As part of the fifth-grade drama unit, the students learned about William Shakespeare and studied a middle school version ofRomeo and Juliet. They analyzed the play for story structure, cause and effect, and character traits. They will next read a version ofA Midsummer Night’s Dreamand look for similarities and differences between the tragedy and the comedy. In conjunction with this, Mrs. Harrington, our music teacher, introduced radio shows to the fifth graders. In groups, they then wrote original scripts and performed them with sound effects. Great work, 5th graders, and thank you Mrs. Harrington and Mrs. Theiss for collaborating on these lessons!
