Teachers Today Must Wear Many Hats!
Professional and subject knowledge has long been part of the teacher education curriculum. However, skill training in the areas of acting, managing, developing and selling appears to have been overlooked in most programs.
Research shows that some of our best teachers are also pretty good ACTORS! They possess skills relating to vocal expression, bodily actions, role-playing, and the use of space and props. And they have also mastered techniques for generating surprise, creating suspense, and using humor in their classrooms.
Acting for Teachers will contribute to the professional development of both new and experienced teachers by providing training in the acting skills that are desired.
