SchoolStage Series and More!

SchoolStage performances can help you meet Common Core Standards. Upon Reservation, a confirmation is emailed with driving/parking information and a study guide. Attendance at any show, combine with pre-and post-performance activities, connects with one or more of the following Standards:
  • Language
  • Reading for Literacy in History/Social Studies
  • Reading for Literature
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Writing
Additionally, in the Common Core Standards for Reading, the definition of the word ³text² can be expanded to include non-printed works such as dance, music, theater and visual arts. A field trip to a live performing arts show offers a different way of perceiving and learning ­ it is a means to expand the toolbox of knowledge.
 
Early reservations are suggested as programs often sell out. Contact Janey Sarther at (630) 942-2220 or sarther@cod.edu.
