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 Sarah Wojciechowski-Prill’s classes for middle school students. The themes for the day will be “building community, appreciating diverse thinking and creating opportunities that support positive self-esteem for middle school students (with a wide range of skills and abilities) in a drama classroom.” 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 November 10.
- 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 5 clock hours will be distributed at the end of the day.
Note: The maximum number of participants is 10. Registration will close when we reach that number.
