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.
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.

The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.

"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."

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

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!

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

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.
