My Students

The lack of knowledge, resources and funding is the biggest hurdle students face that hinders them form academic achievement. All of my students are from poor homes as defined by our Title I school status (100% free lunch.) They are an eager group of multi-talented students. These awesome, selfless, talented, smart students find many opportunities to perform during school and in the community and at various competitions. They have several projects coming up. Our focus this year is more productions as a way to promote healthy choices and awareness, character and civic-mindedness. The demographics of the school is incidentally approximately 95% African American. The students are mostly from single-parent households. My students (9th - 12th grade) are bright, energetic, talented and resourceful. Their biggest challenge resources and funding. Otherwise, even the sky is not the limit.

My Project

Theater and Media can be entertaining as well as educational. They both are powerful educational tools that can be used for multiple purposes: to educate, to entertain and to inform the public.

Students will use technology to create music for media awareness projects.

They need a PA system and speakers to use in creating original productions for PSAs and mini movies. The subject matter will vary based on the student research There will be hands on experiences in Theatre, Music and Media that will be an integration of fun and relevance. Music, Media and Theatre are educational and entertaining. We plan to use all of these strategies to produce programming to bring awareness to important issues. The students will organize the projects by selecting the topics to address and the medium to use (newspaper, television, social media or a live production). Students during the editing process will add music to each of the projects. They will need a PA system, and speakers to complete the project.
