Students read and explore the problems and solutions different characters face in well-known books, stories, or even newspaper articles and photographs (source material can be provided by PUSH or selected by the classroom teacher) and uncover the idea that, despite many external differences, all characters experience basic human emotions. Working collaboratively, students create “Emotionscapes” – choreographed movement sequences that represent the emotional journey of the character(s) in the story. A celebration of their new understanding of the shared humanity of emotions culminates in a group performance.
