Ignite is excited to announce new partnership opportunites as we head into a promising 2018.
Starting in January Ignite Theater Company will partner with area schools bringing arts curriculum and storytelling to fifth through eighth graders,
Throughout the process, peers discuss and edit each other’s narratives, and each author turns his/her edited journal into a monologue, which he/she presents to the class ... and ... beyond the class in a showcase of these monologues as a cohesive staged reading.
• Develop empathy.
• Learn how to think critically.
• Learn editing skills.
• Learn the art of tact and diplomacy -- how to deliver criticism constructively.
• Foster letter-writing skills.
• Explore writing styles and structure, and discuss when authors should abide by and/or break the “rules.”
