Immerse yourself in innovative strategies to enhance your work in the classroom!
- To nurture the intellectual and leadership capacity of teachers.
- To help teachers master dramatic interpretation in order to enhance the learning potential of their students.
- To build strong, sustained relationships between artists and teachers.
Long Wharf Theatre's educational initiatives strive to incorporate the principles of arts education into how teachers approach and communicate general classroom curriculum.
Because the arts help to facilitate the development of analytical, practical, and creative learning, we have designed a three-year series of workshops which will provide teachers with the tools they need to effectively use arts techniques in their everyday classroom.
Featuring guest teachers of the highest caliber, the Educators' Laboratory allows Long Wharf Theatre's educational programming to reach more students, and provides a way for arts education to find a place in today's school environment.
DATES FOR THIS YEAR’S EDUCATORS’ LABORATORIES ARE:
• January 12 for January Joiner
• March 30 for Ride the Tiger
• May 11 for Clybourne Park
Each session consists of two 2 hour workshops that captures the themes of the production in our Student Theatre Series, and will give you the tools to actively engage your students while promoting deep learning of subject matter, adaptability and creativity.
