Didion students write, perform plays on positive school climate

e-Connections Post

Genevieve Didion K-8 School’s middle school students created five dramatic plays that focus on creating a positive school climate as part of their Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) elective class.

The students were responsible for writing, directing and performing plays that included the following themes: School bullying, cyber bullying, anger management, Internet safety and Instagram.

Each play was 8 to 10 minutes long, and the groups designed their plays for a middle school audience. They practiced script writing, improvisation, stage etiquette, costume and stage design as well as other performing arts standards.

At the end of each quarter, the plays are performed on the gym stage as the class’s culminating activity.
