Teacher Continuing Education

 

These courses are designed to help you, as educators, add a significant tool to your work belt to help students reach their potential.  Tasked with the reality of “teaching to the test” can unfortunately somewhat stifle our creativity as teachers.  Of course, testing is important.  There are few other methods as reliable to ensure they are learning what you are teaching.  So how do you help your students learn the material in a way that will stick?

 

Creative Drama is one way.  This is different than Drama that we go see for entertainment in one very important way: Creative Drama is meant for the benefit and growth of the participant, rather than the audience.

 

These workshops are meant to help you deliver you knowledge in a more meaningful way with a greater immediate impact on your students.
