DESCRIPTION:
This day is a unique opportunity to inform your teaching practice through peer observation and discussion and form stronger connections with theater teachers nearby. To accomplish this,

  1. We will observe Mark Rehani teach two middle school drama classes. Pay particular attention to their classroom routines, rituals, and community building. Think about your “Ah-ha!” and “I wonder…” moments.
  2. We will then travel to the high school to observe Glenn Morehouse Olson teach a combined Acting/Directing class for high school students.
  3. Following the classes, we’ll enjoy lunch together. Stephanie Lein Walseth will facilitate a discussion of our observations and other topics of interest to participants.
  4. Take away new ideas and strategies for your own teaching!

DETAILS:
The day is hosted by Dr. Stephanie Lein Walseth, Theater Education Specialist of Professional Development & Resource Programs at Perpich Center for Arts Education. There is no cost to participate. A certificate for 6 clock hours will be distributed at the end of the day.

Note: The maximum number of participants is 9. Registration will close when we reach that number.
