[A/B] The Human Condition (Part II)

By Patrick C. Ames | Classroom Updates

Nov 16

This week your children finished working on his/her dramatic/duo interpretation.

These speeches are interpretive pieces of movies, literature, or poetry. Through these pieces, each child will communicate some aspect of the human condition, and in order to do this, every student will have to use his/her vocal variety and nonverbal communication to ensure the audience both understands and experiences the piece.

​As we begin the speeches, children will now be introduced to the group dynamics of speech and debate. Interspersed between speeches will be group discussions on the film Black. White. In essence, as they communicate aspects of the human condition through speech, each child will begin to analyze the human condition of race and prejudice through film and group dialogue.
