When the presentation begins, saints will take turns reciting a small portion of their memorized presentation. After Liturgy, students will stay in costume and be a part of the “Hall of Saints Museum.” Students from the other grades will have a chance to visit a saint in the museum and ask questions of that saint. Saints must be prepared to answer questions about their life and death. A rubric will be provided. The “preview” to the Hall of Saints will take place October 30, 2014 during our school liturgy at 8:30 a.m. in the ACS gymnasium. The actual “Hall of Saints Museum” will take place later that morning. Students, staff, parents, and friends of ACS are invited to the presentation. Each portion of this entire project will receive a separate grade. Please see the points possible for each portion. This is a “long-term project” that requires “long-term planning!” Although some class time will be given, students need to use their time wisely and meet each deadline in a timely manner so as not to feel stressed about the final presentation. This project is designed to help students utilize their ALM skills and wow us with not only what they know, but HOW they know it! We are looking forward to watching your saint “come alive!” Please sign below and show to Mrs. Kluse by October 3, 2014. You will keep this form for your reference throughout the project.
