Ms. Ezike from Brooklyn NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a black box theater environment and experience in their classroom where they can thrive in their performance through theater elements such as technical device, lighting, curtains, and a set to recite dialogue.
My middle school students are very passionate about improvisation and dialogue in theater arts! They love behind the scenes and on stage involvement. Like most 6th, 7th, and 8th grades they are finding confidence with delivering monologues and dialogues. They could benefit tremendously from a theater box classroom to build lighting, explore theater tech and sets. One of my students comes to theater arts daily singing Alexander Hamilton, the self titled song from the broadway show Hamilton. Reciting the monologue and rapping his part has actually made his speech stronger as he struggles with a mild speech impediment. Giving my students an environment where they can perform can spark their imagination, help them explore careers in behind the scenes and on set theater work.
One of the most significant benefits that my students receive from theater arts is the English Language component. For many of our students, English is a second language. As students recite their dialogue and monologue having visual aids, props and technical stimulation makes reciting and reading lines a much more engaging experience than just reading in a seat.
If my project is fully funded, students will create a video series of on set dialogue and monologue in the environment you have funded with theater resources provided (for example we will document the use of lights, curtains, furniture set and tech resources).
As we prepare our mid year show, these theater elements donated will bring our performance to life! We will document rehearsals and the live show.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
