We Build Monsters
As a relatively new theatre program, Breathitt High School Theatre Arts has very little in the way of established equipment and supplies with which to construct the sets necessary for a large-‐scale dramatic production. In the coming 2019-‐20 school year, we have ambitious plans to perform two plays – both of which will require extensive scenery, set design, and large-‐scale puppetry.
Adventurers’ Guild Level 2
Literacy is a continuing problem among most high school students as many report that they hate reading. As reading is a skill that is imperative in developing further reading, writing, and critical thinking abilities, skills must be practiced in order to achieve improvement. Students are often frustrated by their poor reading ability and abandon it altogether, which leads to a vicious cycle wherein they never improve the skills associated with reading. I intend to continue the strategy I developed when I created the BHS D&D Club upon my first year at BHS. I will also employ an ARI Grant to purchase more materials for our rapidly expanding club, to facilitate increased growth and provide new student leaders (i.e. Dungeon Masters) the means to create their own worlds, design their own adventurers, tell their own stories, and run their own games, with other students participating as adventurers.
