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.

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.
Kirk, 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.

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

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!

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

"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
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student
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!
