Mythology and Greek culture permeates modern societies. Students explore mythology through puppetry. Teachers prepare by reviewing the state standards for theater and language arts.
Helen Schell brings history to life by providing examples of how mythology permeates modern societies. Students review Greek roots and fill out puppetry profiles.
The puppets need to be manipulatable and take ten days to construct. Students write scripts for a show using a flow chart.
The class practices manipulating their puppets and creates an original voice. Students perform scenes and critique each other using the "PPQ" method (praise, polish, and question.) Jennifer Larson provides tips and techniques for improvement.
