Children need to be taught to collaborate, just like you would teach anything else.
At Studio9, students learn to work with each other in small or more significant groups on projects that take up a few classes or large ones, like performances, that take months. Collaboration brings out social skills, critical thinking, problem-solving and, of course, teamwork skills. These are life skills beyond school years.
In addition to collaboration on class projects at all grade levels, a certain number of Fridays through the year are designated Collaboration Days, where students work together across grades on projects around theatre, music, dance, and presentations.
