Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export

Summary

  • Arts teachers create a safe environment where students feel free to express their thoughts and feelings and take creative risks. In this session, participants meet an Acting I teacher who helps students let go of their inhibitions and an Acting II teacher who encourages students to take creative risks as they interpret monologues. In a dance class, a teacher asks students to work closely in pairs so they can study subtle aspects of movement technique. In a visual art department, the teachers work together to create a community that gives students multiple outlets for artistic learning. Finally, a music teacher builds his students' confidence and skills as they learn the basics of improvisational singing.
