ACADEMY STANDARD

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION

Standard 1: Integrated Curriculum / Projects
Spring Musical (Footlose) Shakespeare Shuffle, District III Thespian Competition, End of Year musical recital for chorus, band and guitar. One Act Awarness play MANDALA performed for school. State Thespian Competition. Arts Showcase where all the arts were showcased after District Thespian Competition.
Curriculum In Action:
The CAPA academy worked with the English Department this year to present the "Shakespeare Shuffle" ! The Shakespeare Shuffle consists of groups of CAPA students roatating throughout participating English classes and performing scenes from various Shakespeare plays that the classes have studied. This event was a success as the majority of the classes visited were reading Shakespeare at the time, so it fit very nicely into the English department's existing curriculum.
The Students performed a variety of skits ranging from traditional interpretations of Shakespeare's Hamlet, to a "hiptster" interpretation of "A Midsummer's Night Dream," and even a modern interpretation from "Romeo and Juliet", and the scene from Shakespeare shuffle was referenced while reading the play in class; some students even used it as a model for their own interpretations of a scene from the play! Many thanks to the students of CAPA and Mrs. Griffiths for making this event happen! Entered by Mickey Griffiths on behalf of Sara Maitland
Curriculum In Action:
The Shakespeare shuffle supported the English curriculum of studying Shak

Entered by Mickey Griffiths for Ursulyn VanMeter
Nautica danced with the marching, which helped the dancers understand the difference between dancing with recorded music and live music.They also met with students after school to teach everyone how to do a "flash dance" to Thriller. This was an important part of our moral boosters for the school as well as opening up Dance curriculum to all students. Result? She has a bigger class this year!
Standard 2: Career Focus
Students involved with TV and Theatre interns were able to work closely with teachers and understand the abiltiy to mutltitask to get the job any job done. Both of the theatre students and the TV student are headed to College with abilities to direct, run, costume and set a show. They will be able to catch on quickly to the demands of college theatre and tv arts easily.
  1. Shark TV produced a 4 hour long “Holiday Special” that aired in December over the CCTV system of AHS, featuring original holiday-themed videos from its students.
  2. Shark TV also produced a 6 hour long “End- of-the-Year Special” that aired in June over the CCTV system of AHS, featuring original school-based videos from its students.
  3. Shark TV continued throughout the year to document the daily school curriculums and special activities of Atlantic High School including: the AVID program, Drama, Dance, Band, and Vocal performances, student-driven in-class presentations, as well as various ceremonies for ROTC, Black History Month, Mr. and Miss AHS, etc.
Standard 3: Program of Study
All students must take TV production, and honors english, classes are not pure but the best has been done to try and get them at least half and half. Depending on the student they can chose from Band, Theatre, Music and Dance
Standard 4: Advisory Committee

Standard 5: Enrollment
70
Standard 6: Pure Schedule
No, but we have done the best we can. 50-50
Standard 7: Common Planning / Collaboration
Meetings and collaboration occur at common lunch time. Planning and discussion also take place after school and during production process. We could not have a common planning which made everything that much more difficult. A lot of running around and emails. Very frustrating, hopefully next year there will be a common plan for all the people involved in CAPA
  • Band and chorus collaborated on their end of the year recital with chorus, keyboard and guitar classes for an in shcool production that was viewed by many different classes from the entire school.
  • 2nd year CAPA students performed and rewrote some of the original one act play for Awarness week. They did all aspects from acting to lighting, sound and stage management. This one act was performed for the entire school during Awarness week.
Standard 8: Staff Development
Florida Association of Theatre Educators, Playwrighting workshop, Florida High School Band Associatiation.
Standard 9: Articulation
Visits to Middle School to promote interest. Band recitals including middleschool visits to AHS, Students attended many community events as a group to promote further interest in CAPA. We worked at Port Orange Family Days as well as the High School Academy showcase at the County fairgrounds.
Standard 10: Workbased Learning
We only had 3 senior students eligible for a internship. Since these students did not have transportation, we devised a plan where one student worked at a TV intern for Mr. Brunning and 2 theatre students worked with Mrs. Griffiths to direct an original one act awarness play called Mandala. These same students also reorganized my office and the prop room to some kind of workable standards.
Standard 11: Capstone Project
Spring 2012 of Production of Grease, 2013 production of Footlose
Next year's plans are for a Capstone end of the year review for all ARTS students. A night of singing, dancing, acting, art in the lobby and on stage, as well as musical backup by all senior members of CAPA.
Standard 12: Marketing
We have had a meeting with the Board and with parents. There was a lot of publicity for the Spring musical Footloose,(please see attached programs, posters and flyers) we had information in the newspaper, radio announcements, information and video available on the school website. Each performance all aspects of CAPA were recognized for their part in the presentation of the show. Parents and audience members were made aware that the intensive training and education that went on for these students involved this musical production
