Thurs. Aug. 22-24 Aug 2019 (K-4 focus)
How is drama utilized as way to create an agile, collaborative learning environment in your classroom? How do non-traditional forms of theatre activate student understanding and perspectives on curriculum? How do principles of creating original performance enable you, as an educator, to build an artistic practice into your everyday classroom?
This 3 day Master Class guides you [teachers] through a process for instigating curricular inquiry through verbal and non-verbal theatre genres. You will learn how to create learning experiences centered around performance, text and dialogue, imaginative play, and collaborative theatre creation.
Whether you are an educator with roots already in drama and theatre, or have always wanted to enrich your own exposure to the dramatic arts, the Master Class sets out to cultivate and nurture your own creativity, revitalizing (or awakening) your inner artist.
Education at Arts Commons invites you this summer to discover new ways to engage students in curriculum, new ways to foster and deepen connections between students in the classroom, and new ways to inspire you individually to feed your own passion for the arts.
