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 loved how you were interactive with everyone.

When I had to go up and say my part, I thought I would be nervous. When I get nervous, my voice gets deep and it didn’t get deep. I wasn’t nervous and I was surprised they didn’t make me nervous. I was comfortable. They probably made me conquer my fear on getting nervous in front of people.
Jordan, a student
The message was right on target - every student was engaged.

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!

"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
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.

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.

The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.
Kara Friend, Charleston, WVA
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student

Jacob, a student
I thought it was neat how I could be like a real actress.

Dave Young and Robin Pease came to my class and taught my classmates and me about the fundamentals about writing music and composing music.

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