Social Justice in Drama
September 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm PDT
In this workshop, we’ll 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-Emotional Learning, and the dynamics of Social Justice to life in a classroom. We address power and positional power by using drama activities that give students the chance to exercise agency and create positive interactions. Which arts and academic standards do we address when we teach performing arts and when we integrate arts and academics? We’ll answer that question and others in this fun, highly engaging workshop that includes exercises and strategies you can apply in the classroom immediately.
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.
