Two new systems for the theater were introduced today:
Magic List - encourages children who would not otherwise choose to perform to take a turn on the stage; provides opportunities for diverse groups of children to learn new strategies of problem solving, negotiation, and compromise from other children.
Storyboards - increases the independence of children performing plays; they can "read" their story and perform it without teacher assistance
Lila, Prater, Rose, Grace divided their story into six parts and illustrated each "scene."
