DPM APT FINE ARTS ENRICHMENT PROGRAM 2016-17: The Great American Challenge Presidential Game Show. (posted 9/30/16)
Thanks to the partnership between the APT and Spirit of 67 Foundation, on September 26th, 2016 DPM students attended the American Eagle Productions performance of The Great American Challenge Presidential Game Show. Modeled after "Family Feud", this exciting show used teams of contestants from the audience to answer questions about the presidential election and general social studies. All questions were grade appropriate and teacher tested. This genre is especially relevant given the election year and is an engaging way to present this timely historical event.
