        John Leguizamo's Tales From a Ghetto Klown - Comedy at 8,000 Feet

        In this “STEM” inspired lesson, students examine how changing oxygen levels at higher altitudes impact award-winning actor John Leguizamo as he attempts to stage his Broadway show, Ghetto Klown as Pelado del Barrio, two miles above sea level in his family’s ancestral city: Bogotá, Colombia. Students assume the role of a tour manager for a favorite performing artist or athlete about to tour major cities in South America. They must research in which cities altitude sickness may be an issue and do research about the condition to create a travel brief for their artist/athlete.
