8th Grade Integrated Drama

March 11, 2016
By KCS Staff

The 8th grade class brought the historic Battle of Bull Run to life, as they presented a stage adaptation of Paul Fleischman’s novel, Bull Run.  Each student assumed a persona from the novel and presented several monologues to give the audience a glimpse into how the character was affected by the First Battle of the Bull Run during the Civil War.  The perspectives ranged from northerner and southerner, male and female, free men and slaves.

As an integrated project, the presentation incorporated several middle school disciplines, including Social Studies, Language Arts, Music, Drama, and Technology.  Students did a great job delivering their respective character’s point of view through costumes, props, and accents.  Bravo to students and staff for putting together a unique presentation of such an important historical event!
