What is Literacy Through Drama?
Literacy through Drama (LTD) is a program developed through a partnership between Georgia Ensemble Theatre and The Teaching Museum that focuses on adapting a piece of literature to a play. This workshop is available to all elementary and middle grades students. The workshop requires two class periods over two days, per class. Children love the experience of creating a short piece of theatre from stories that they know and love.

THE LIVING STUDY GUIDE

MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL     $125/CLASS
A WRINKLE IN TIME
THE GREAT GATSBY
ROMEO & JULIET

The Living Study Guide is a fresh perspective on classic literature texts; A Wrinkle in Time, Romeo & Juliet and The Great Gatsby. The Living Study Guide encourages students to engage in the world of the text through drama and writing. Because the workshop activities have students on their feet, embodying characters or objects in the story, they develop a different sense of connection than reading alone provides. English teachers who bring The Living Study Guide into their classroom will be able to provide their students with a fresh, interactive way to engage with and make sense of these classic texts. Teaching artists will discuss the themes within these stories and whether or not they are still relevant in the today’s society and worldviews.
