The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.

I really enjoyed being able to work with a group to being a poem to life using drama.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving.
Clara Barton Elementary School, Levittown, PA
Being that many of our students from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, France, Russia and Turkey have limited verbal and listening skills, the visual part of the program created a captive audience.

It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.

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!
Renaissance Theater, Professional Development Participant
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.
"The kids were jumping out of their seats to participate in the show. The parents were pleased that, by the time the kids had the mystery solved and the show was over, they learned about the water cycle, including precipitation, collection, and evaporation."
Laurel Blatnik, Chagrin Public Library
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.

I liked the fact that we worked together and the results were amazing.

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.

The story was creative and highly interactive.
Judy Carr Newtown, PA
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.
