"ANA HAS PROBLEMS" Theater Performance - January 30, 2020
Posted on 2020/01/21
At 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 30th the Cortez Theatre Advanced Class will be performing a chantical.  Literacy coach and theater teacher Jennifer Rogers, ELL teacher Joel Laing, and the advanced theater students wrote called Ana Has Problems.  This play is an adaptation from a novel that has been read by our Level I English Language Learners called Poor Ana by Blaine Ray. This play will be unique as it features jazz chants (hence the reason it's called a chantical) written to assist learners in acquiring the English language. 

On Friday, January 31st, the advanced class will perform a matinee at 9:00 a.m., in which fifth-grade elementary students from Alta Vista Elementary School will attend along with level one English Language Learners from Apollo, Cortez, Glendale, and Independence.

While the play is suitable for everyone, speakers of other languages who are learning English are especially encouraged to attend. The price is free, but donations will gladly be accepted.
