Professional Development for Teachers

  • Consider ways you can incorporate theatre-based lessons in your class. How would you plan the material? What resources would you use? How do you think the students would benefit?
  • Think of ways that you can use theatre to help make your teaching more effective; for example, to bridge language barriers or developmental gaps.
  • Consider how theatre might encourage students to express their ideas or feelings. What would be necessary to develop a basic expression of feelings into a complete work of art?
  • Attend a play as a group. Reflect on how the experience affected you. How was the experience different from watching a movie?
