1/23/16 Mr. Scott Field - Philosophy of Improvisation: Say Yes! Face the Facts, and Enjoy the Ride Morning Session Open to Educators
As a performance art, improvisational theater is founded upon powerful and positive principles that help people create scenes together. These same principles can be used in our ordinary lives, helping shape our ex-periences so they too are positive, cooperative, and creative. What parent couldn’t use those mindsets? This session will get you on your feet improvising with others, saying yes, facing the facts, and laughing.
2/20/16 Ms. Hannah Krimm - Using Morphology to Support Literacy Success

3/19/16 Ms. Nancy Duggin - Reading Stamina—Eyes on the Page
