Early Arts Learning Workshop: FINDING DRAMA EVERYWHERE

FINDING DRAMA EVERYWHERE: Bringing Nonfiction to Life
Melissa Richardson, Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist
Every nonfiction topic is an exciting story waiting to happen. Children are gathering research everyday through books, media, and sensory observations. Telling and acting out stories encourages teamwork, fosters creative thinking, reinforces vocabulary, and helps children make connections in their learning. Engage in drama games that connect the concepts of character, setting, activity, and plot to virtually any curriculum topic. Investigate techniques for using children’s prior knowledge to create nonfiction-inspired stories and bring them to life through movement and drama.
Goal: To assist participants in developing strategies in virtual, hybrid, and in-person environments to meaningfully engage children in nonfiction topics through movement and storytelling.
