Educator Workshop:
Developing Concentration and Cooperation Skills Through Drama

In this workshop, teachers explore strategies to incorporate drama activities into the classroom throughout the school day.

We believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn, and that academic success is inextricably tied to building social-emotional competencies. From morning meetings, to circle time, to guided reading, math, and science teachers are in search of ways to build an engaged and mutually supportive community in their classrooms. Teachers will experience how creative play and improvisation games can be used to strengthen the development of important skills as concentration, cooperation, communication, and empathy.

This workshop is ideal for Elementary, English Language Learners, and Special Education teachers.
