StandUp/SpeakUp

an anti bullying program through theater

 This program uses hands on, interactive drama activities and creative writing combined with open ended storytelling. Students learn to figure out how to best approach the situations by trying out various solutions and problem solving as a team. Students will work collaboratively to create an original piece of theatre inspired by a “bully based” story shared by each classroom.  Students will practice techniques and gain empathy and confidence to stand up for themselves and for their friends in bullying situations. (Grades 1-6)

 

Drama Across the Curriculum
