École Évangéline: First Project
Contact person: Monique Mainville
Artist(s) involved: Lynn Gaudet, Sylvie Toupin, Denis Robert and Louise Arsenault
Project Title: On est tous dans le même bâteau
This project included a play on Canadian heros and the publication of
sketches written by students, which will be used as teaching tools, and
to create a memory book. Students were involved in all the steps leading
to a stage production, including research on Canadian heros, research
on Canadian geography with the teacher, drawing up a series of oral
expression activities to pave the way, collective writing of the play,
learning different technical aspects : self-criticism, writing songs and
sketches, and making small books with the teacher.
"This project was really entertaining and funny.”
"I loved the entire project. It was interesting, entertaining and funny."
"I especially loved going on outings to present the play. That was really fun."
From the creation process to the research for the play, and from the set up to the staging, I felt that the students were deeply committed. Their energy and contribution not only in their own roles, but in the whole project was great. In this beautiful adventure, they fulfilled a great challenge and sailed straight to success.
