Making British History ~ Learning through Improv!
Teacher: Cy Brown
Cost: $280 or $260 if taking 2 or more classes per quarter.
Mat Fees: $25
Homework: Bringing in fun facts!
Forget heavy textbooks, tedious tests, and lists of dates. History comes alive when you get to BE the characters! Each week students will hear a story of royal intrigue- plots and prisoners, love and lunacy. Using fun and easy improv basics, they will jump up on their feet and act out these stories and understand history from the point of view of the people that lived it. And there is no writing requirement! Explore history in more exciting and fulfilling way. From Mary Shelly to the Battle of Guildford to the Irish Potato Famine.
Students are invited to keep learning at home and bring in fun facts about our subject to inform our improvs. And in our last weeks, we will take our most hilarious, touching, and exciting scenes and put them together for an informal presentation for Huck on the last class day during lunch. So join us as we Improv with British History!
