Writing, Building, and Performing a Puppet Play
Session: 7558

Participants will work as a group to write a play, create puppets and props, rehearse, and perform for an audience. They will learn cost-effective techniques, applicable to a wide age range that they can teach directly to their students.

Participants can apply the skills they learn to almost any subject area. Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre (with Teaching Artist Monica Leo) has used puppetry to teach Prairie history, Underground Railroad history, and the history of immigration into the Midwest. In each case, according to anecdotal evidence from collaborating teachers, students who participated in the projects retained the knowledge they gained much longer and more thoroughly than did students who simply read and/or heard the information.

Registration for this course will close on 7/25/18.
