James Project: Greek Theatre for the Classroom

Scripture memory and recitation are a key component to grammar school studies. Such exercises provide the first steps toward lessons of rhetoric. As students mature, however,
this practice must change its shape, but how? In this presentation Karen shares the James project, a project in which her 7th grade class memorized the entire book of James and then performed this book using a modernized version of Greek theater. Such a project not only furthers the practice of thoroughly learning scripture, but also provides even the smallest of schools the opportunity to introduce a drama program for students.
