Theatre Espresso's teacher development workshop—called Drama Across the Curriculum—is available to schools, libraries, and museums. The workshop is designed to help teachers create dramatic structures that not only challenge students with cooperative problem solving, but also build confidence and encourage reflection. Teachers receive a demonstration of dramatic methods and then work in groups to adapt these techniques to their curricular needs. Each group formulates an educational goal, devises a structure to meet that goal, and then practices their structure. The session ends with an evaluation session and suggestions for classroom implementation.
We also offer a workshop for students with different content and structures but many of the same goals as Drama Across the Curriculum. Student workshops can be adjusted to provide a pre-performance or post-performance focus and are appropriately tailored to grade levels.
