Webinar: "Hey, Kids! Let's Put on a Show!" Theater in the English Language Classroom

  • America House

Presenter: Danielle Capretti

Webinar Description: 

This webinar focuses on how to use theater in the classroom - from developing short, theater-based activities to putting on a student show.  Danielle will answer key questions, such as:

  1. How do I choose a dramatic text for my students?
  2. What language activities could I do with that text?
  3. How do I cast and direct a student show? 

By the end of the workshop, you will have an enhanced understanding of using both small- and large-scale theater projects in your classroom. Ultimately, the process requires an interdisciplinary approach--combining language work, theater performance and culture studies.
