This day is a unique opportunity to a) inform your teaching practice through peer observation and discussion and b) form stronger connections with theater teachers nearby. To accomplish this,
- We will observe Jessica Chipman teach two Intro to Theatre Arts classes for high school students. Pay particular attention to their classroom routines, rituals, and community building. Think about your “Ah-ha!” and “I wonder…” moments.
- 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.
- We will provide up-to-date COVID-19 protocols closer to December 1st.
- Take away new ideas and strategies for your own teaching!
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.
