Summer Creativity Seminar: Puppetry in the Classroom

Monday, Jul 24 - Friday, Jul 28, 2017
Summer Creativity Seminar: Puppetry in the Classroom
This course is offered for 3 P-credits for NYC DOE Teachers.

Puppetry in the Classroom will help you to build artistic and teaching techniques for using puppetry as a tool in your core curriculum. Taking part in a series of hands-on activities, you'll be engaged as both artist and educator to build knowledge and skills in puppet-making, manipulating puppets, creating characters, verbal presentation, interpreting and demonstrating an understanding of text.

After a week of puppet making and creative exploration, you'll be able to develop interdisciplinary lesson plans that build student engagement in their learning, collaboration skills and problem-solving skills, as well as deepen skills students need to acquire in English Language Arts, such as demonstrating levels of meaning in text, all through the art of puppetry!
