Active Citizenship in the Drama Classroom

Active Citizenship in the Drama Classroom

by Kerry Hishon

Global citizenship focuses on the world as a whole and our place within it. With Active Citizenship in the Drama Classroom you can encourage students to take ownership of their voices and make positive changes for the future.

The digital edition of Active Citizenship in the Drama Classroom is available for free for Drama Teacher Academy members. Visit DramaTeacherAcademy.com to download or learn more about becoming a Drama Teacher Academy member.

To be an active citizen requires skills that are practiced daily in the drama classroom: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and empathy, to name a few.

This toolkit offers articles and activities that you can use with your students to encourage them to start thinking about their place in their community, their country, the world and beyond.
