Let's Make A Musical: Involving Young Minds in the Creative Process

Presented by Denver Casado

Kids are bursting with creativity. Are we doing our best to tap into their imagination and allowing it to become a part of the creative process? Denver explores specific ideas you can implement that will facilitate creative involvement from your young actors. From character creation to songwriting, kids will feel empowered and more connected to the material when their ideas are heard. Denver will lead a brief songwriting activity designed for teachers to easily implement themselves.

Action Writing: Beyond Drama Games -- Utilizing the Body in the 21st Century Classroom

Presented by Niki Tulk

We possess a wise and inexhaustive resource when we invite students and teachers to incorporate physical, movement and arts-based learning into classrooms at every level. Influenced and drawing from the Action Theatre work of Ruth Zaporah, the National Writing Project, and movement-based pedagogy, this workshop investigates this marginalized area of promoting creative and critical literacy through drama: through theory, practical strategies and questions that lead to literacy-rich adventure.
