The Mightier Sword is an interactive experience, allowing students to navigate through the scenes and make selections that will allow them to acquire achievement badges that will eventually unlock the "treasure of knowledge". Meet five American writers who are women: Emily Dickenson, Sylvia Plath, Estela Portillo Trambley, Dorothy Parker and Maya Angelou. Learn about their lives, their writing and how they used their pen (the mightier sword) to change their own world. The Mightier Sword is a 45-minute virtual production created by TheatreSquared, and conceived as a "play that you play!” This choose-your-own-adventure experience integrates Core Content standards in ELA and Theatre.
This production will be available online from October 1 to December 31.
This program is made possible by generous support from the Windgate Foundation, Simmons Foods, and the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage, and Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
