APTH 604 - Teaching through Theatre: The Theory and Practice of Theatre-in-Education (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
This course is designed to prepare students to devise and perform appropriate theatre-in-education (TIE) interventions by analyzing case studies, conducting field research and developing the skills necessary to the actor-teacher. Students will gain an historical perspective, a theoretical over-view and a practical grounding in the working practices of the TIE team. They will reflect on what contributes to a successful educational theatre experience and examine the requirements for building effective partnerships between actor-teachers and educators. As a final in-class assignment, students will develop and present their own TIE projects to an invited audience of young people.
