Alison Morett

Through “The Art and Philosophy of Magic,” Ms. Morett and her partners introduce their students to the history and practice of magic. Students enjoy a performance by an award-winning magician who introduces students to the concepts, theories, and practices of magic. As a part of their research, each student learns to perform a trick or illusion. The project concludes with a student-developed production in which the entire class participates. A short documentary, compiled into a PowerPoint presentation, will be shown to the public through the school district cable channel and students will have the opportunity to perform at local community centers, nursing homes, and the local Head Start.
