When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.
Maddi, 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.

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.

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.
Cinnie Wappel, New Hope, PA
The performance was superb. The children were engrossed from start to finish. They wanted more!
Viola Franklin Melbourne, Florida
You all did an amazing job this summer. The performance showed real and substantive accomplishment by the children – a testament to your team’s work. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

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.

I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!

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

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

"You are so talented. I think it really hits home and gets the point against bullying across…with the Greek masks on each character pleading their case/cause. I love the interaction with the audience.”
Lisa Pawluk, Longfellow MIddle School
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 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 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."
