Theatre Class Participates in Service Learning Project at Local Middle School
Dr. Chandra Hopkins’ class went to Carver Middle School to work with their morning news crew, WCMN (Wildcat Morning News) team, on public speaking skills. Converse Theatre and Musical Theatre majors guided more than twenty 7th and 8th graders through vocal warm-ups, physical exercises, and theatre games.
Dr. Hopkins said, “It’s a chance for the Converse students to put theatre teaching into practical use and to help a local school to strengthen their morning news crew’s public speaking skills– a useful skill they can use on and off camera.”
