The Blue Team at the Stepping Stones Day Program wrapped up its English language arts study of Greek mythology by writing and performing an original play entitled “Good vs. Evil.”
During the academic unit, the class read the novel “The Lightning Thief” and compared the characters to those from ancient Greek Mythology.
Under the guidance of teacher Robyn Yorker, the students expanded their experience by selecting their own Greek characters to include in their play, which featured a battle to overcome evil.
Dialogue for the performance was created during ELA instructional time and rehearsals taking place over several days.
The set design and props were completed under the guidance of art teacher Julia Hanson.
The play was performed live and videotaped so that students could enjoy the final product.
Stepping Stones Day Program is a collaborative effort between the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation and Hillside Children’s Center, which provides a structured, small-group environment to help students overcome challenges.
