I miss y’all. Be good for your substitutes!!!

Ms. Sheppard, a retired music and drama teacher, starts on Wednesday and will be with you through the end of the semester. Dr. Crawford, also a retired and experienced teacher in our fields of study, will start with you after the new year. I’m very excited to welcome both of these women to our classroom. Please show them, and every other teacher who is taking the time to be with you, how wonderful Chamblee OnStage Students are!

Lesson plans for Fri 11/10

2nd pd and 4th pd MUSICAL THEATRE

At the beginning of class, please pick up the first two handouts you turned in yesterday so you can work from them today and over the weekend. Your folders are in the blue basket on the desk. Please return them to the black cubby!

Work productively the entire class and submit an exit ticket at the end of class for a grade. Follow your rehearsal plans in preparation for next week’s solo performance assessments.

Students may rehearse in small groups in the side rooms according to song choices, but they should be practicing with their tracks, which they can access from their phones, and singing along to the tracks basically the whole time.

Make good use of time.

Please stop work 5 minutes before the end to complete the “exit ticket” below on lined paper and turn it in to class cubby folder:
A quick written description of
1) what they actually got done in today’s rehearsal (and compared to what they planned to do),
2) how they got their “what” done (what techniques did they use),
3) and how successful they were and why. Compare with yesterday.
4) What they still need to do (in summary) to be ready for their performance next week
5th

6th

7th
WOMEN’s
CHORUS
These ladies will be participating in the Veterans Day Ceremony in the auditorium. It begins during 6th period and goes until 2:45 or 3, so they won’t come back to the classroom until it’s over. When they get back, they can work on their ten percent projects. (Student choice).

Storm Update

I hope you stayed safe in this week’s storm and are enjoying some unexpected time in the comfort of your homes as things return to normal.

CALLBACKS for the musical are this Friday (9/15) from 3:30-5:30. Students invited to callbacks will hear from me shortly.

I aim to have our cast list and an updated rehearsal schedule by Monday 9/18. Our first rehearsal will be Tuesday 9/19 or Thursday 9/21. The parent meeting will occur later.

For class, chorus and musical theatre students should practice the songs we’ve been singing and be ready to work diligently upon our return.

In drama, you might want to use this extra time to look at more of Charlie Chaplin’s work if  you have electricity.

For everyone: if you have outstanding assignments, now is a great time to catch up on those. See Infinite Campus and missing grades for details.
