Choose Your Own Story
Led by Katie Swider
Students will learn to create strong characters and imaginative stories. During live classes, students will go on guided adventures where their choices will influence how the story unfolds. Students will be challenged to be their silliest selves in theatre games and work collaboratively to write a choose your own adventure story to use at home! Each student will need 3-5 feet of open space to move around freely. Google Classroom will be used for all course communication. Classes will be held on Zoom.
CAP will provide all supplies needed for this course.
