A monologue(or monolog) is when the character may be speaking his or her thoughts aloud, directly addressing another character, or speaking to the audience , especially the former. Monologues are common across the range of dramatic media ( plays, films, animation, etc).
Our Monologue recipes are designed to encourage students to develop character and learn to deal with real life situations, peer pressure and common conflicts that arise in school and life. According to research, introducing children to drama and theatre at an early age, addresses the skills which benefit children's education and development in five general areas: physical development/kinesthetic skills, artistic development /drama and theater skills, mental development/thinking skills, personal development/intra-personal skills, and social development/interpersonal skills. While many parents fear participation in drama will damage their child’s academic progress, a UCLA study concluded that students involved in the arts tend to have higher academic performance and better standardized test scores -- nearly 100 points better on the SAT, according to a separate study by The College Board.
Leadership Linguine Ages 8-12years (8 Weeks)
With increase in work pressures and this fast paced challenging world, being a good leader is not only about being excellent at your job but one needs to develop the skills to manage people well.
It is said that people with leadership qualities are very few, which results into very few leaders in our society and large number of followers. We all are taught to be leaders and not followers, but how many of us actually become leaders?
The answer to this question is the presence of some leadership qualities which are absent in most people. These leadership qualities help the leaders to think rationally, and in a different way than the way of thinking of normal people. Leaders are those people who are capable of thinking big and are visionaries who write their future on their own by hard work and consistency.
Our Leadership Linguine Recipes are interactive activities in the classroom that can serve as leadership training activities for students. Our leadership activities will prepare the students for achieving their goals of working in the high level management in a big multinational company or starting their own enterprise when they complete their education. The leadership activities for kids aim at developing the risk-taking abilities, decision-making abilities and the ability to shoulder responsibilities. The leadership challenges in leadership activities for children will train them, in this regard, quite early and increase their chances of becoming a leader.
