Culturally Responsive Theatre Education – August 4, 2020, 7:00 pm EST
This workshop will investigate culturally responsive education and provide applications for the secondary classroom. Together, we will identify steps a teacher can take to unpack their own practice and re-think their curriculum and methods. Then, we will explore ways to develop a classroom community (virtually or face-to-face) rooted in culturally responsive practice. Click here to register for this workshop!
