Last week, the student at IS 126 took news clippings from various papers and online articles and researched them in small groups.
They then created a series of tableaux that represented those articles, adding their own peculiar twists to the stories and creating bold new headlines to accompany them, such as “Beyonce Bowls Over the Super Bowl” and “Trump Infects with Zika Virus”.
Many students who had been nervous about creating content for their performance the week before had no problem parodying various trending topics.
