Presenter: Danielle Capretti
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:
- How do I choose a dramatic text for my students?
- What language activities could I do with that text?
- 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.
Danielle has lived and worked in thirteen countries. In each of these countries, she has been active as an actress, director, dancer and choreographer. Danielle has also put on full-length productions with EFL students throughout Europe. In Albania, she led a play reading group at the American Corner in Tirana for 2 years. Additionally, Danielle has trained teachers in using theater in the classroom in Hungary, Ukraine, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Italy.
