Puppetry for Educators: PERFORMANCE

Puppets when used in a classroom setting can capture the imagination of a student and bring any lesson to life. The idea of using puppets to teach can be daunting at first. This workshop will help educators learn to become comfortable using puppets in the classroom. Mike Harding of Applefun Puppetry will share his experience and provide tips on using puppetry effectively. Then, in a safe environment, participants will be encouraged to try out some puppets and do a little performing. Special attention will be given to using improvisational techniques with puppets. No prior performance experience is necessary.
