In Puppetry Workshop students develop their skills in language through their investigation of the art and craft of puppetry.  Students construct and manipulate shadow puppets, marionettes, and hand puppets and around stories that have been created by students.  Students learn to work cooperatively through a sequence that culminate in a production.  The production instills a sense of commitment and responsibility.  This course includes presentations at local schools, hospitals, and township events.
Puppetry Workshop provides a voice for all students.  Through the puppets, students are able to express their ideas through written and oral means.  They build confidence while developing performance skills.  Puppetry workshop has been especially beneficial to our special education students who do not always meet with academic success.  In addition to servicing these students, the program also lends itself to the district's character education program.  Through their pupppets, students teach their peers about respect and responsibility through varied skits.
