All the World's a Stage: Creative Ways to Bring Your Lesson to Life

A Prime Stage Theatre ACT-48 Online Workshop providing practical ideas on how to enhance student engagement using basic drama methods.

Presented by Lawrence E. McCullough, Ph.D, Educational Theatre Specialist

WITH INCREASING SUCCESS, growing numbers of elementary, middle and high school teachers across the U.S. are employing a range of simple, yet effective creative drama methods in the classroom to enhance student engagement with math, English, science and social studies curriculums.

Join educational theatre specialist Lawrence E. McCullough, Ph.D. as he outlines ways in which basic theatre techniques can be adapted to boost student involvement in class projects and learning. You do not need to have any theatre background to take the workshop, nor to employ these techniques in the classroom.

During this workshop you will:
- Learn how to write a short play teaching a lesson from your curriculum.
- Use simple drama exercises to increase student participation.
- Discuss resources and best practices for using theatre to attain learning objectives.

Over a 30-year career as a theatre educator, Dr. McCullough has written 26 books of plays and monologues utilized by schools, churches, synagogues, community centers, festivals, museums, historical societies, and theatre venues in 17 countries including the United States. As Administrative Director of the Humanities Theatre Group at Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis, Dr. McCullough designed drama education curriculum development workshops for teachers and supervised a nationally touring social-issue theatre company.
