Perfecting your pedagogy: Creating curriculum maps and SLOs centered on national standards
Registration cost: $210. Thirty student limit.
Theatre arts teachers encounter a lot of hoops to jump through and administrative red tape. But this is more than just busy work. Consider the National Theatre Standards, requirements for Student Learning Outcomes, and curriculum maps as guideposts for your curriculum development. Combined with best practice study in theatre education pedagogy and methodology, these resources will create a killer drama class that focuses on student learning, has authentic and varied assessments, uses 21st century skills, and advocates for theatre classes in schools. You’ll leave this PDI having started your own individual curriculum map.
