Course Description

Create a Character with Body and Voice is ideal for Grades 6-8.

The curriculum gives teachers a clear path for teaching vocal techniques and physicality. The interactive videos show students how to use vocal pitch, range, articulation, posture and walk (weight, width, length, and pace) to create a character.

The resource kit provides all of the tools necessary for both online and in-class instruction with lesson plans which align with national standards and a variety of learning activities. 

Nearpod Lessons can be used for online delivery or flipped classroom instruction. Nearpod activities include quizzes, fill-in-the-blanks, role play with open-ended questions, collaboration boards, FlipGrid for video submissions, and matching pairs. All of the Nearpod Activities provide both formative and summative assessments and are editable so that teachers can customize them as needed.
