When does Common Core Math become your ticket
to the world of the stage? 
When students team up to create a Set Design Model & Proposal by that includes a "to-scale model" and the logic-based reasons why their design is the best choice for the children's opera, The Very Last Green Thing.
Student teams will present their work for professional review at the               STAGE RIGHT EXHIBITION from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, October 19              at Touhill Performing Arts Center.
This WebQuest invites your students to work in collaborative teams as they respond to a real-world challenge using STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math) skills.  It is designed for use by grades 3-12, with graduated expectations. At all levels, it involves specific Common Core Math, English/Language Arts and Anchor standards. 

The project is the brainchild of a partnership between Cooperating School Districts of Greater St. Louis, CHARACTERplus, and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. It invites students to imagine what they would create if they were given the job of designing the set for Opera Theatre's October production of The Very Last Green Thing.

In reality, Professional Designer Scott C. Neale has created the set design for this opera and will be one of several professionals who will view the models, listen to the presentations, and provide encouragement, feedback and insights from their experience.  

This will take place at the STAGE RIGHT EXHIBITION on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center from 1 - 3 PM.
