Voices of Inspiration and Rebellion - Hall Only
1 Credit
Grade 12
Storytelling is how we profess love, command attention, persuade, plead, declare war, sell products, interview, make business proposals, challenge injustice, change lives, and alter history. Moving from ancient storytelling to the classical idea of rhetorical citizenship to the contemporary world and voices from spoken word poetry, students will analyze, compose, and present a broad range of texts: speeches, oration, drama, debate, storytelling, poetry, and video. Together we will read, listen, watch, write, collaborate, and speak. Throughout the year, students will build a portfolio of work. In a culminating capstone experience, students will tell their stories by conceiving, composing and presenting final projects based on their specific interests and areas of inquiry. Possible voices to be studied: Frederick Douglass, Shane Koyczan, Nelson Mandela, Sojourner Truth, Cicero, Louis CK, Shakespeare, David Foster Wallace, Tupac, Socrates, Ronald Reagan, Sarah Kay, Queen Elizabeth, Gandhi and Malala Yousafzai. This course is listed in both English and Theatre, with credit being awarded in English.
