Theatre as an Anti-Bullying Tool
Hey ShowSpacers-As this community is filled with educators, I am sure many of you have been following the tragic story of Phoebe Prince, whose untimely death has aroused a red flag for those of us who work with young people. (If you need to catch up on the headlines, click here.) Of course Phoebe's all-too-early passing is not an isolated incident. We are informed of many stories throughout each year, either through this type of media blitz or our own neighbors, of young people who endure torment in our very own schools and communities. I thoroughly believe in theatre as a teaching tool, however, as I'm sure most of you do. How can we use theatre to teach kids about bullying and its consequences? What have you guys done in your schools and communities to use a theatrical experience as a teaching tool in this sense?AlissaShowBizChicago.com
