I visited Dilbert to find the “useless block of wood” strip.

Before finding it, I stumbled into this clip which had me laughing until I cried . . .

Talk about a pregnant pause.

How observant are you?

Are you able to recall details of items you see every day . . . without refreshing your recollection by examining them?

Souldipper forwarded this link to me last week.  Thank, Amy.

It’s a simple quiz, but the average person only gets 7 out of 25 questions correct . . .  

Are you above average???

Put on your thinking cap.  No cheating.  No looking around for clues.  No getting out of your chair. 

Look deep . . . the answers lie within.

What a Drama Queen! September 26, 2010

200px-RealMotherGooseDrama 101 provides a shift in vantage point to students, allowing them to see the world through the eyes of the characters they play on stage.

As they step out of their own skin, and into an assigned role, they open their minds to other people, other cultures, and other perspectives.

Creating sets and costumes allows their inner artist to appear and take the reins.  Some are inspired to pick up a pen and give playwriting a shot.

In musicals, they get to test their smooth moves and their vocal chords.

Actors learn to enunciate and project themselves from the stage to the back row of the theatre.  Instead of standing timidly on the sidelines, they must face stage fright (and fear of rejection) head on and tell it to take a hike.

Music, drama, singing, dancing, public speaking, playwriting, and set design allow students to experiment with life and expand their view of the world from the mundane to the magical.

Next time someone accuses you of being a drama queen . . . exit stage left.
