Story Challenge Workshop
Students from the Higher Chinese classes participated in the Story Challenge workshop in January.  This workshop provided students with opportunities for creative expression in textual interpretation and its adaptation for performance.  Students were required to deal with impromptu requirements thrown in during their performance by the instructor, requiring them to have to think and act fast and change the flow of their script on the spot.  Students embraced these challenges and enjoyed much camaraderie with their friends in the creative process.
