I don’t usually gush, but this was FABULOUS! For 45 minutes, Robin Pease held her audience
spellbound (students and adults alike). She skillfully created an awareness of cultural differences while augmenting the children’s awareness of the even greater degree to which we are all alike.

She has a seemingly magical ability to reach a young audience, draw them in, and keep them engaged...from fidgety four-year olds to skeptical fourteen-year olds, and she captivated and entertained as she educated.

I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!

It surprised me are how fast they got us to write a song and then got people to actually sing along and interact with everything.
Julia, a student
The message was right on target - every student was engaged.
Grace Adams, Kendall NY
Robin Pease was the keynote speaker, a constructive and inspiring addition to the festival....she really held the attention and interest of the entire auditorium. Teachers came away with a better understanding of how to enhance storytelling with dramatic arts principles, and use stories from diverse cultural backgrounds to create activities that address learning standards.

"The audience joined in, singing the sequence of the water cycle. After the program, positive comments from parents exclaimed that this will give the kids a jump start on science in the upcoming school year."
Lynn Raymond, Cuyahoga County Public Library
The story was creative and highly interactive.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving. It is a great way to learn history!
Patricia Waite, Levittown, PA
It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.
Kirk, a student
I really enjoyed being able to work with a group to being a poem to life using drama.
Kayli, a student
Your workshop with my 7th graders was not only outstanding but also memorable. After you left, our assistant principal stopped in and the kids insisted on showing him their Civil War poetry presentations. He was duly impressed.

It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.
Faith, a student
Thank you. I especially will be using the side-by-side comparison of the Great Law of Peace and the Constitution. And my students enjoy learning about the Native American symbolism present on U. S. currency.
Hugh M. Cummings High School, Burlington, NC
I believe the show clearly demonstrates that the "Founding Fathers" based many portions of the Constitution on their knowledge of Iroquois government, rather than on the Magna Carta, as textbooks often claim.
