“It is not the place of the theatre to show the correct path, but only to offer the means by which all possible paths may be examined.” ― Augusto Boal
Instead of completing a final exam, we will engage in-depth learning activity that will take three days of class. You can learn more about this process under the Prep, Performance, and Ponder page. You will be graded on your ability to engage in this workshop either by active participation in class or via a written reflection.
The idea of this endeavor is to work together to apply what we learned about effective, ethical, and inclusive interpersonal communication by creating a skit or performance together that reflects knowledge that you, the students, deem most important. My hope is that you can see the difference the skills and ideas we discussed this quarter can make in a given situation.
Objectives:
Celebrate the knowledge that the students deem the most important and how they demonstrate that knowledge ().
Support the student’s desire to not have to take an exam or write a traditional paper. I learned about their preferences in a brainstorm session and taking class time to discuss their feeling ().
Promote equity in how students share, use, and value knowledge (Funds of Knowledge).
Encourage reflection on how they will use and value the knowledge that they gained in this classroom working from a grounding exercise ().
Translate book knowledge into body and performative tools to help students to communicate with clarity and effectiveness (Funds of Knowlege).
Collaboratively create something in real time that reflections many different experiences, interpretations, and ideas from different students to avoid a single story ()
