Teacher Workshops

All the world's a stage

Our hands-on, theater-based workshops invite educators to dive deep into the creative process of the Guthrie and gain a new set of tools and perspectives to take back to the classroom. All workshops are eligible for CEU credits.

Activity-Based/Experiential Learning

Creating a Collaborative Classroom Environment

GOAL: I want to empower myself and encourage my students to create a collaborative and communicative classroom environment.

The classroom can be a creative, collaborative space for all subjects. By planning for and embracing the unexpected, educators can design and lead a variety of energetic, interactive, activity-based lessons. This workshop will introduce activities based in the creative process of theater and practice the skills necessary to lead them so you will feel motivated to enthusiastically, creatively and effectively bring arts-inspired activities into the classroom.

  • Date: Saturday, April 18 | 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Workshop Fee: $45 ($35 if you register by April 4)
