Art, 9th-12th grades - Class Fee: $15

Art comes in all forms, sizes, and is unique to each artist. This is a relaxed class that does not require expertise, but will require eagerness to be creative and get a little messy at times. We will dabble in many forms of art throughout the semester including, but not limited to collages, sculptures, mobiles, canvas art, paper mache, foil art, and so much more. Some projects will be big, some small, some completed in one session, and some will take weeks. It’s going to be great!

Classes will consist of several labs which include dissections. Students will be expected to log on to google classroom for multiple assignments throughout the weekdays.

Drama, Class Fee: $15

This class will be rehearsing a play that will be performed at the end of the semester party! Skills we will be focusing on include stage movement, using props, showing emotion through facial and body expression, and speaking in front of an audience. ​**THERE WILL BE REHEARSALS OUTSIDE OF CLASS. I will do my best to keep these to an hour a week, but as we get closer to production, there will be a few that could extend to 3 to 4 hours in length as they practice in full costume with props, sound, and lighting changes. If we need props and costumes, I will always try to borrow items before making purchases to save everyone money. **If your child has never been in drama class or in a play, please contact stepupcoop@gmail.com 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 a fun and not intimidating!

Spanish 1BClass Fee: $0

Only open for students from Spanish 1A in the Fall. The United States has the second-highest population of Spanish speakers in the world. In this Introduction to Spanish class, we will build vocabulary, learn verb conjugation, and practice speaking and writing. Students must have taken Spanish 1A in the fall semester.

YearbookClass Fee: $0

This class will co-create a photo yearbook for the co-op as well as learning about photography. For the yearbook portion, students will develop skills in photo composition, page layout, and design.

For photography we will go over the exposure triangle: ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed as well as a few other things like point of view, depth of field, etc. Bringing your own camera is preferred so you can learn how to use it better, but a personal camera is not required. If your child is bringing their own camera please let us know what it is when you register.

Movies as LiteratureClass Fee: $25

Only open for students from the Fall semester. "Good movies tell good stories, and good storytelling requires the use of traditionally respected literary devices and techniques. With a little help from a study guide, many movies introduce the viewer to excellent literature that is being presented in a visual medium,” which is accessible and enjoyable for many, whether they’re avid readers or struggle with reading high school novels. Parents will be responsible for obtaining specific movies (whether by DVD, rental, or streaming service) for their student to watch at home two to four times over a period of about two weeks. Students will watch the designated movie at home, answer the questions to prepare for in class discussion of the literary device(s) of focus, and write an essay from a choice of prompts. Parents should plan for a maximum of 75 minutes per day, 5 days per week of work outside of the co-op class. Total time will depend on how many times your child watches the movie and their grasp of literary analysis. Quizzes for vocabulary, study guides, and essays will be completed at home and turned in using Google Classroom, so students will need access to a computer and the internet. Movies included: • The Three Musketeers (1993 production) • A Christmas Carol (1984 production) • The Importance of Being Earnest (2002 production) • The Wizard of Oz (1939 production)  • The Miracle Worker (1962 production)  • Charade (1963 production) • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005 production) • Hook (1991 production) • Life of Pi • Mr. Holland’s Opus • Remember the Titans • The 39 Steps (1935 production) • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001 production or 2002 extended production) • The Incredibles
