We Are Social Creatures in Thinking Bodies: Drama
Part of our Reconnecting and Rebuilding Community Through the Arts Series, this workshop includes activities and exercises that will aid students and teachers alike in coming together after the year of our lives lived online. All activities are applicable in face-to-face and online learning spaces.
In this workshop we will examine the ways that the performing arts, especially Drama, engage both the mind and the body, and are particularly useful for bringing English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional Learning to life in the classroom. What are some arts and academic standards that we address when we teach performing arts, and when we integrate arts and academics? We’ll answer that question and others in this workshop.
Come ready to engage with colleagues and move just a little bit. Inner-City Arts always uses the arts as the starting point for learning. No prerequisite knowledge is needed. All workshops are interactive and hands-on, even online.
