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.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving.

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.
Robin is celebrated in the community for her teaching, her direction, her performances, her entrepreneurial skills, and her overall expertise. I highly recommend her.
Ray Gargano, Victoria Theatre
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 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."

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.

That was the best time I had at school.

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

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.

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

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

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.

I really enjoyed your presentation and had a lot of fun performing. I think you're really cool!
