ethnic studies theatre course?

    Hi everyone. I'm in the very beginning stages of creating a new theatre course with an ethnic studies focus and I was wondering if any of you teach a course like this already? My idea is to look at theatre as a means of creating revolution, building bridges, and social change. We'll study agitprop, teatro campesino, theatre of the oppressed, etc. and I also want my students to create culminating performances of their own. If you teach an entire course like this, I would love to see your curriculum.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Kaila,
    I was just asked by my admin to create an ethnic studies course for juniors. I'm in a HS in NYC. I wonder if you got any suggestions, or even if you want to collaborate on that. Please let me know. Here is my email: and cell 402 6602183. Hope to connect with you.
    Thank you!
