Students will work in teams to develop skills such as defining roles, cooperation, time management, and communication among others.

Students will build an ‚Äúthe elephant in the room.‚ÄĚ To do this they will select an issue is important but that people simply aren't paying enough attention to. Students will work in groups to build a 6 foot elephant out of cardboard and newspaper. They will work together to turn their elephant into a visual representation of their issue.

‚ÄčHorror Radio Drama

‚ÄčIn this session students would explore the form of radio drama and how it can be used to effectively tell stories in the horror genre. By the end of the session students would write and record their own horror radio play. The session would cover the four core elements of radio drama: music, sound effects, narration and dialogue. Key questions would include: How do these elements of radio drama work individually? and How to they work in combination with one another? Students would consider these elements by listening to, reading/performing and discussing existing radio plays within the horror genre. Time would be taken during the session to explore sound effects through the creation of foley effects (the reproduction of everyday sound effects). We would also explore the genre of horror through consideration of Stephen King‚Äôs three types of terror: the Gross-out, the Horror, and Terror, The session would consider how horror radio dramas use (and alter) the traditional plot structure that students have been taught (Introduction, Inciting Incident, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Conclusion). The session would conclude with students working in groups to write and record their own short radio play.
