In this empowering residency, students use a powerful array of acting fundamentals to analyze and enact grade-specific stories, which reinforce the pillars of social emotional learning and inspire bravery in the face of adversity. Coping with bullying is specifically addressed, and through a superhero role-playing game, students practice transforming fear into courage. The residency concludes with students creating short performances demonstrating their learning, as well as a pledge to uphold the principles of a bully-free classroom. Veteran children’s theater director, Bridget Palmer, of Santa Rosa Children’s Theater, leads this transformative residency.

Bringing artists into your classroom, each of LBC’s new arts integration residencies leads your students through six interactive sessions that combine an art form and another academic content area to delve deeper into learning.
