PowerPoint presentation and lesson plan.
Students will recognize how professionals must work hard to be successful, but that the hard work is enjoyable to them because they are doing something they love. The lesson plan consists of Venn diagrams that lead discussions past the “star quality” of each performing arts profession into the realm of what it really takes to make it in show business, or in some cases what it takes to be a good audience member. They help students explore the many workday aspects of the arts. Students will be introduced to the following Life Skills in this lesson: Identifying Educational Needs, Being a Good Team Member, Identifying Talents, Time Management, Problem Solving, Decision Making, Negotiating, Setting Goals, and Art Appreciation.
