|The Art of Collaboration|
Let Rajeckas and Intraub help your students build a sense of trust, teamwork and collaboration while introducing ways to read and write more effectively.
Paul and Neil turn a variety of children’s games like “Red Light/Green Light” and “Telephone” into group performances that help students build a sense of teamwork and cooperation. The exercises emphasize watching and listening.
They also provide a framework for helping students to interpret and express ideas, analyze and critique their own and others creative work, and develop effective strategies for social interpretation.

|The Speech Doctor Is In! Residency|
A confident child can do anything!
The Speech Doctor, Kathleen Williams, PhD, extends her visit in this 3-5 day residency, so students can see their public speaking skills improve and self-esteem increase.
Students will receive encouraging, age-appropriate instruction in all areas of speech delivery, and Kathleen’s humorous, comfortable approach makes learning the essentials easy. Relaxation and confidence building techniques will also be presented.
Elements of curriculum can be incorporated into this residency to further reinforce concepts presented in the classroom. By learning to conquer the causes of nervousness and mastering these techniques, students become self-assured, expressive communicators who are not afraid to speak up for themselves.
A workshop for students interested in further developing their acting skills is available for short- or long-term residencies.
Some topics which can be addressed are acting techniques, voice projection, character development, scene development, and audition preparation. In addition, stagecraft components can be explored in depth.
