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.

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

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 surprised me are how fast they got us to write a song and then got people to actually sing along and interact with everything.
Julia, a student
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student
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.

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 an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.
Faith, a student
In addition to teaching in the schools, she is one of our best presenters of teacher professional development and is called upon regularly by other arts organizations for professional development.

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.

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!
