StageLab’s Elements of Drama professional development will be July 24 in Louisville.

This PD session focuses on the Elements of Drama and how they connect to the English and language arts Common Core. This session will be centered on the literary elements and ways in which these can be studied in context with the Common Core. Performance elements will be addressed in terms of the speaking and reading criteria. Technical elements and connections to social studies also will be covered.

StageLab’s Professional Development sessions offer both novice teachers of drama and experienced teachers new skills, techniques and activities to enhance students’ study of and connection to drama.

StageLab’s hands-on, participatory approach to teaching drama complements the school level review of arts programming implemented this school year, and aims to provide teachers with the skills to attain distinguished level in the rubric for their school review.
