Elective Term Final Presentations:

January 22, 2015
Plan ahead and mark your calendar to attend Final Presentations on January 22nd, 2-3pm, at Thalia Hall in Pilsen. Experience our unique Elective Term courses through the lens of our students, who will guide us through the courses they study and the transformation their lives undergo in a matter of weeks.

At Elective Term Final Presentations, students will showcase their learnings from courses including Ollywood, FARE, Five Faces, and Stage Chemistry. Here are some brief descriptions of the courses:

Ollywood focuses on film critique through the study of pre-, post- and production.

FARE/Eatalian approaches Italian language and culture through the lens of what we eat.

Five Faces of Genius brings Firemark’s original content to GCE, calling on students to discover and reveal their creative genius.

Designed in partnership with the Goodman Theatre, Stage Chemistry features the STEAM magician’s tools that are used to create theater.
