March is National Theatre in Our Schools Month.  In an experiment called “Project Oxygen” Google did research to find out what skills helped their top employees become so successful. The seven top characteristics of success at Google are all soft skills: being a good coach; communicating and listening well; possessing insights into others (including others different values and points of view); having empathy toward and being supportive of one’s colleagues; being a good critical thinker and problem solver; and being able to make connections across complex ideas. Where do you get those skills, according to the research? Training in Theatre!  Want to learn more?  See Mr. Thompson in room 14-F and find out how you can be a part of the spectacular Royal Scots Theatre Program!
