Third Graders Explore Emotional Expression Through Theatre

Theatre provides time to explore emotional expression. 
In a recent third-grade project, “The Masters of Expression,” Theatre Director Julie Robles photoshopped face masks over Actor Jim Varney’s facial expressions in a photo layout depicting various emotions and had boys guess what emotion he was acting out.

The class discussed how it can be difficult during the pandemic to know how people are feeling because everyone is wearing a mask. But, by being more aware of other parts of the body like eyes, eyebrows, hands, and foreheads, they can play detective and become masters of expression!

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
