All you have to do to make an “A” in this class-- Open your mind and participate. This arts integration workshop, led by Serena Ebhardt of EbzB Productions, will inspire you to use dramatic art as a teaching tool in your classroom. You will leave the workshop with materials to recreate the experience for your own students. You will also discuss modifying the technique to serve any curriculum.
Ebhardt explains and models arts integration for educators. She uses visual art, music, found-objects, text, speech and movement to create a devised dramatic presentation which incorporates curriculum standards. Participants are asked to mindfully and physically engage with the lesson; to synthesize personal connections to the material; and to work as an ensemble. Activities inspire inclusiveness and self-esteem. Physicalization and vocalization enhance memory— useful for recall on tests. Ebhardt also incorporates the basic tools of an actor (Breath, Body, Eyes, Face and Voice), which will serve you and your students for effective everyday communication.
Trained in the models of The John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts “Artists as Educators: Planning Effective Workshops” for Arts in Education; The Lincoln Center Institute’s International Educator Workshop; and the National Center for Creative Aging, Ebhardt has extensive experience working with students, teachers, elders, and business professionals in on-site residencies and workshops.
