This interactive work session will take participants through the process of reflecting on their core values as they embark on the task of curriculum mapping for their theatre classroom. The session will walk participants through building units of study, while utilizing backward mapping, identifying skill-based theatre instruction, writing lines of inquiry, developing assessments both formative and summative in alignment with National Core Arts theatre standards. This session is a great for the veteran teacher looking to refresh their curriculum and the new teacher starting the process.
