BOOM Troupe, Chicagoland’s premier student assembly company, teaches 8th grade students how to overcome the challenges they will face in high school. A student starting high school, finds herself on the outside of the social circle, the “cliques”. She becomes distracted by peer pressure to change the way she acts and dresses in order to “fit in” and soon finds herself compromising who she is. Your students will learn to be true to themselves, find their own place with people who care about them. “MAKING IT CLIQUE” faces issues including: Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Dating Issues, Hazing and Bullying, Academic Expectations, Finding Your Place/ Making Good Choices. Based on specific research gathered from Chicago area high schools, this story shares a real and empowering look at high school life. Interactive discussions will allow your 8th grade students to face these key issues and help create solutions to these real life problems. In the culminating finale, your students experience the positive changes that can occur when one stays true to who they are.
