This was great! I really enjoy these professional development workshops and this one had cool ideas I can take and use in the classroom tomorrow! The speaker was very organized, executed her objectives well, and provided useful techniques. Fun time!

Ms. Pease is a very committed artist who works quite well under the pressure of deadlines; I am amazed at how much she is able to accomplish in short periods of time. A strong commitment to excellence is apparent in all of her work. She is very good at keeping people focused on a task or goal and is adept at coordinating multiple simultaneous projects.

THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
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.

Pease utilizo una mezcla de español e inglés para contar las historias y adaptarlas a su audiencia, la mayoría de ellos eran bilingues.

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.

The interactive qualities of the workshop made the class really exciting. It was great to be up and moving, active and creative. It gave me another strategy to use in the classroom. Easy to do, yet very power outcomes.

"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."

Learning has never been such fun and so moving. It is a great way to learn history!

Thanks! We need more PD like this in order to motivate our students to actively participate and learn concepts in various ways. Bring Robin back!
