Professional Development: Arts Integration Tools for Teachers
Acting Right: Drama as a Classroom Management Strategy
Instructor: Focus 5 Teaching Artist Jason Suel
Recommended for educators of grades K-8
Maximum number of participants: 30
The foundational elements of acting such as concentration, cooperation, and collaboration are the center of a structured process, which can become the basis for effective classroom management every day. This engaging step-by-step approach, developed by Kennedy Center teaching artist Sean Layne, empowers students to take ownership of and be responsible for their own behavior. In this workshop, teachers learn how to help students build the skills necessary to establish a sense of self-control, accountability, and teambuilding in their classroom.
