The fourth grade students have been reading about Helen Keller during literacy week, as well as studying the elements of drama. The students created dramas with their partners this week in reading class. As part of their studies, the students attended a ballet by the Thodos Dance Chicago Company at the Thrasher Horne Center for the Arts. The Dance was "A Light in the Dark: The Story of Helen Keller & Anne Sullivan." Afterward, the students discussed the differences between the written form and the live performance.
