Day at the Museum

Day at the Museum

Students will research and learn about the struggles of Guam's indigenous population, the Chamorro people, the Battle for Guam, and the lasting impact of WWII on the island. Students who participatein this project will be involved in the production of performance monologues of historical figues from the WWII era to be presented to the public.

Preparation Instruction:
Prepare and perform a monologue during one of 2 scheduled auditions. After auditions, students will receive their roles, and the real fun and learning will begin. Students will participate in workshops to hone their acting and researching skills. Since the focus of the project is to bring the stories of WWII on Guam to the community, students will learn the importance of historical accuracy in museum theatre. In addition to workshops, students will need to attend rehearsals to prepare for the performance.

Activity Instruction:
Actors will need to memorize their monologues, learn acting techniques, and perform their roles in public.

Reflection Instruction:
In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection is required. Use this as a guideline for your reflection - what you did, , what you learned, how this was an example of service, why the Day at the Museum project was important for the Guam community, and how you felt about your participation.

Learning Standards/Objectives:
This project includes many standards from the Guam Department of Education. This will be posted as soon as possible.
