Coding & Computer Science

Mr. M taught programming and computer science at a vocational high school for the past two years. His students had chosen computer science as a career, and did very interesting things! They also taught coding to middle schoolers: Roblox Lua and Dip Your Toe In Code (DYTIC), a JavaScript games mini-course. Mr. M is trained to teach Code.org's AP Computer Science Principles course. For Lyceum Prep, he will teach the middle school version, Computer Science Discoveries, and DYTIC.

Dance

Ms. Ashley Green - Grades 6,7,8 - pa.slprep.org

Focusing on the artistic movement side of performing arts, each scholar will build a movement vocabulary through studying and participating in various styles of dance. The course starts off with a strong focus in social and world dance, then moves through more traditionally trained styles with opportunities for creation. Ms. Green has earned a BA in Dance from Coker University and an MA in Teaching Artistry from Wayne State University.

Music and Video Production

Mr. Kevin Figueroa - Grades 6,7,8 - mvp.slprep.org

Students will be immersed into the production world. We will work with different DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation) such as; Garageband, iMovie, LMMS and Graphic Apps such as Keynote and Photoshop. Our projects will be based on the three Production stages; Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production.

Theater

Ms. Easton-Hazzaa, Mr. Burling & Ms. Kennedy

In this course, we will teach students the various jobs in the theater and how they work together to create performances. Students will see themselves as storytellers, collaborators, and a part of an ensemble. Topics we will cover in this class include: Acting, Playwriting, Directing, Devising, Improvisation, and Design. We will learn various theater exercises, activities, and games, with the ultimate goal of creating and presenting theatrical productions.
