Education and the Performing Arts is a community outreach course. Students learn how to lead creative drama exercises. Then they form teams to visit local classrooms to teach four one-hour drama sessions. We end the class demonstrating our skills through creation of a manual and sometimes a creative drama in the classroom workshop. We also explore the use of drama to teach math and science.
