SA's ARTISTIC DIRECTOR LEESE WALKER TO TEACH FOR 8TH YEAR AT T.T.I.

THEATRICAL TEACHING INSTITUTE (T.T.I.) is a six-day opportunity for educators and teaching artists to add to their toolkit of teaching strategies and to stimulate their own intellect and creativity by exploring Roundabout's Theatrical Teaching Framework, which posits that every great lesson has the elements of a great play.

The workshop is co-led and was co-designed over the past 7 years by Leese Walker, Strike Anywhere's Artistic Director. The hands-on seminar provides teachers and teaching-artists with experiential techniques to enliven their classrooms. Participants will delve into devising original artwork with Walker each afternoon and will be treated to a ticket to "The Humans" on Broadway which will be referenced during the course. TA's and teachers can expect to walk away from the week reinvigorated and newly inspired to bring their classroom curriculum to life by applying the theatrical teaching methods they learn over the course of the week.
