All the World's a Stage - Primary Sources + Theater Games
The purpose of this course is to have fun making theater with primary sources. Learn to play and lead theater games that will help make primary source material enjoyable for the whole class. Educators will learn how to make a character, do improvisation exercises and even try their hand at writing a short play – all while developing skills that will help them unlock primary source material and add to their curriculum. Participants will use primary sources relevant to Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies and develop their own lesson plans that bring these resources to the stage. No theater background necessary; just come and have fun!
