Introduction to Philosophy - OT3VHV024C ( Virtual ) ( Concurrent )
This course, though it studies philosophy as the original science of life, does not engage in disconnected, abstract theorizing; rather, it seeks to understand in a concrete way life as it is really lived, to understand in a concrete way the limits of life, and to understand how philosophy can be used to return to life, the experience of which is thereby enriched. Such entails going to what is not in itself scientific, the characteristics that are universal to all life as lived experience, to trespass the limits of reason in favor of the affectivity of the heart. Students will meet through a live stream lecture each Thursday from 12:45-2:00 and complete additional online assignments. Grades 9th-12th, Internet access, and microphone required.

Drama-Performance - VA3BEP009X ( Project Based )
Interpretive movement is simply communication through rehearsed physical expression. The phrase may sound intimidating at first, but it need not be. Even simple routines can amplify, clarify, and beautify a thought. Physical expression of ideas is a natural and basic concept. Some people's hands are animated as they speak; others engage their whole bodies when telling a story; in sign language, subtle nuances in conversation are conveyed through the position of the hands, body language, and facial expressions. Stories will come to life as students implement many ways of physical expression including hand signs, dowel rods, fabric, sign language, and drama to interpret lyrics and stories. Puppets Students of any age can bring a puppet to life and attribute personalities, characteristics, attitudes, and more! Puppets can be anything or anyone! They can be a best friend, a sibling, a teacher, or even a pet. It does not really matter because the world students create with puppets is entirely their own, a world without boundaries that they can freely explore. When used in the classroom, these puppets can help boost creativity and stimulate kids' imaginations at all ages. Puppets will be used to tell stories, act out dramas, and to interpret songs. This is a performance class. Throughout the year, we will be performing mini skits for our Partnership families as well as scheduling outside performances for nursing homes, elementary schools, or other public opportunities. These scheduled performances will be based on the enrolled families availability and desires. This class can be taken separately based on your student's desires, however, it is a great compliment to the Drama Creative Works class where the student can create their own puppet to use in performances.

Students will go beyond ordinary Legos and learn to build creations that bend, light up, use motion + sound sensors, and more. We will work on various projects in class throughout the semester and students can take home their own set of Flexo and Brixo at the end to continue creating at home! Flexo was a recent Kickstarter project that allows students to connect to Legos with short elastic bands – making models that can flex and move, like a trampoline, a bow, a ball, etc. This also eliminates the need for projects to be only square/rectangular and allows kids to incorporate more angles in their designs. Brixo, another Kickstarter project, includes Lego pieces with built in circuitry. Students can use these to add light, sound, and motion sensors to their projects, as well as LEDs. Students learn basic programming through visual building, while making fun new creations! All materials provided.
