Middle Ages History- Middle School (Grades 6-8) Teacher: Jessica Eberhard Supply Fee: $0 

The Middle Ages were the bridge between our Ancient and Modern world. During this time, the world first became a global community, with the riches, wonder,and wisdom of the East making its way across the silk roads into Europe, where, recovering from the collapse of Rome, new civilizations were forming. The Middle Ages were the nursery where our modern conceptions of math, science, engineering, astronomy, economy, geography, and literature first began to flourish, and where people first began to reach out and understand the shape of our globe, our solar system, and our relationship to eternity. In this class, we will explore these wondrous times of human development, as world travelers along the silk road, stopping at all

the major centers of trade and discovery: from Teotihuacan and Cordoba in the West, to Timbuktu in the South, to Baghdad, Manyakheta and Hengzhou in in the East. As a middle school class, we will focus on learning how to take lecture notes, do independent research, how to summarize and share research, and how to organize large bodies of information into concise formats that will help us review and retain that information in the future. We will also practice tracing the evolution of ideas and inventions from the past into the present. 

There is no supply fee but there will be a book list provided that students will need to purchase or obtain from the library.

Weekly homework will include writing assignments and vocabulary study.

Drama and Theater Design (Grades 4 and up) Teacher: Erica Coleman Supply fee: $20 

Theater encompasses multiple forms of art and design: writing, painting, dance, music, sewing, construction, lights, sound, hair, makeup, and, oh yes, acting! It is truly a collaborative

art and much more than what happens “on stage.” This class will work on creative, engaging, challenging, and fun drama projects that will immerse students into the collaborative art of theater. The projects can easily accommodate a variety of skill levels, from beginner to the more experienced student. Projects will include: scene work, acting techniques, story & character analysis, production & publicity, design, and technical elements such as lighting, sound, sets, and costumes. 

Class time will be spent developing and practicing scenes, designing sets, sewing costumes, producing a playbill, marketing our event, working on sound, and preparing to perform at our Winter Fair. Performing as an actor or actress in these full-length productions is NOT required; however, assisting in some way (such as working as part of the stage crew, helping to build/paint sets, sewing costumes, doing hair/makeup, or collaborating on some other aspect of the show) IS required. The class will collaborate on a final class project to be performed in December. 

The supply fee will cover props and copies of the play but costumes and materials will be gathered/bought/created/ designed at home by students.
