My students live near central California's delta. Most of my students come from lower-income families. My students are very hard workers, striving to master each challenge that faces them. They attend my school because of the advantages of the focus that we are able to give each individual student as a small school.
My students work in a 1 to 1 setting and are geared toward future achievements once they graduate high school.
Many have already enrolled in local collaborative programs to begin work on their college credits, some finishing two-year degrees as they also complete their senior year. The honest, hard-working group who take pride in their learning.
As part of our study of Shakespeare's play, Much Ado About Nothing, students will be staging and presenting monologues and key scenes to their middle school counterparts. In order to do so, students will plan their presentations from a theatrical standpoint. They will create a promotional poster, plan the staging and costuming, and create a mask that demonstrates their understanding of the scene and character that they are portraying. The final product is expected to show the students' ability to interrupt Shakespeare's work and to also mastery of character analysis by becoming a character from the text in the presentation.
