P014-8088.1M19 - Puppetry in the Classroom

Course Details
Course Description:

Puppetry has the power to open up worlds of meaning and possibilities for students. The New Victory Theater will work with classroom teachers (Pre-K-12) to build artistic and teaching techniques for using the art form of puppetry as a tool in their core curriculum. Participants will participate in a series of hands-on activities intended to provide them with practical strategies to learn a variety of puppetry techniques and to incorporate this art form into any academic unit. Teachers will be engaged as both artist and educator to build knowledge and skills in puppet-making (making choices to build puppets based on given text or original text); manipulating puppets (gross and fine motor skills, making connections between character emotions and puppet movements); creating character (conveying meaning through a puppet), verbal presentation (language skills), interpreting and demonstrating an understanding of text. As a result of this course, teachers will be able to develop interdisciplinary lesson plans that build student engagement in their own learning, collaboration skills and problem-solving skills, as well as deepen specific skills students need to acquire in English Language Arts, such as demonstrating levels of meaning in text. They will also build and utilize art form-based formative and summative assessment tools. Teachers will work in alignment with the NYCDOE's Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: Theater, New York State Learning Standards in Art and English Language Arts and make connections to New York State Pre-K-12 Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy.
