While most students won't have to stay every week, the lead actors and actresses may have to.
**If your child has never been in drama class or in a play, please contact Kelly prior to signing up. While drama is an amazing way to help students become more confident and "come out of their shell", this particular class is a bit much for beginners or those who are shy. I never want to push a child past their comfort zone, and this is meant to be fun and not intimidating! If you feel like your child might not be quite ready for this, you might consider the Fundamentals of Drama class where we focus on building trust and confidence through improv games and short scenes! If you have any questions, please email Kelly.

Chemistry, 9th-12th grades - $40

This class is only available to students who were enrolled in it in the Fall. This high school two-semester course will cover foundational chemistry and chemistry lab. This course will require approximately 5 hours of course work outside of the co-op class per week. Course work will include weekly in-class labs and instruction. At home, students will complete a weekly lab write-up, reading and tests through Master Books Chemistry curriculum. In addition, supplemental material and practice problems will be posted in Google Classroom. Each student will need access to Google Classroom and the internet at home to complete and submit their work.

Psychology, A Christian Perspective, 9th-12th grades - $30

The purpose of this class is to teach psychology from a Christian world view. Almost everyone who goes to college today will take an introductory psychology class. Psychology departments are home to some of the most anti-Christian intellectuals on campus. Christian students are often not prepared for these discussions and many compromise their Christian faith. Give your student a head start in these psychological conversations and help them strengthen their faith. This course counts for 1/2 a credit.

Glass will be involved, but precut and checked for sharp edges.  (If you would prefer your child to wear gloves for this, I will have them on hand.)

Research Reports, 6th-8th grades - $15

This class will be focusing on activities, short scene performances, and improv games to help students build self-confidence as they learn drama and speech skills. These acting exercises focus on stage movement, using props, showing emotion through facial expression, and speaking in front of an audience. Our goal is to develop effective oral expression and stage presence, as well as learning fundamental theater-related terms and concepts. While this class is similar to the fundamentals class offered in the Fall, we will be building upon what we've learned with new activities and will be perfect for new and experienced students alike! There may be one or two short monologues or dialogues they will be expected to memorize toward the end of the semester. If you have any questions, please email Kelly.

Drama, 2nd-5th grades - $20

In this drama class for our elementary aged kiddos, we will learn the basics of drama while having a blast! Our goal will be to put on a play at the end of the semester with input from the students on what sort of play they want to do and a class vote to finalize the play we will perform. Everyone will have a part, even those who want to learn and be a part of the drama class but not necessarily be on stage in front of everyone. This will be a great class for getting your little one out of their shell and become more comfortable talking in front of others.

When the 30 minutes is up their team will give a short 3 minute presentation to a panel of “judges” (moms) about how they prepared their dish, prevented cross contamination and give a description of the nutritional value of ingredients and cost per serving. The judges will decide who is the winner.
