Elementary/Lower Middle

After two years in this pandemic, our students are still lacking opportunities for real connection with others. Creative drama games and techniques can enhance some of the social-emotional learning needs of young people. In this session participants will explore how to use drama to strengthen a classroom community, build empathy and understanding, and allow students the space to form strong connections with educators and fellow learners.
