GAMES! GAMES! GAMES! Strategies for Success with Young People

Games and theatre activities for young people to build confidence, promote community and collaboration, and strengthen literacy skills.

4-Hour Professional Development Session:
Earn a CUNY Certificate of Completion and CTLE Credit for Professional and Le
vel III Teaching Assistant certificate holders. 

Theatre games can provide opportunities for participants to learn how to work together, develop responsiveness and confidence, explore creativity, build community with peers, and have fun! Facilitators can use them to energize and engage a group, increase commitment and focus, and explore collaboration and community building. In this session, participants will learn how to use different theatre games and strategies that can support leaders running in-school activities and afterschool programs.

This practical workshop will provide participants with a hands-on experience on facilitating activities, with a particular focus on:
  • Step-by-step directions
  • Personal facilitation style
  • How a game might be adapted for different populations, physical environments, and educational goals

Who should attend?
Middle School and High School educators and afterschool facilitators seeking simple, affordable, and adaptable community-building activities for use with large and small groups of young people.

Led by Joey Schultz, Associate Program Director for the CAT Youth Theatre. Light refreshments provided.


What our participants are saying about 2018 Professional Development sessions at CAT:

“One ‘ah-ha’ moment for me from this workshop is just the confidence to know I can do this. Having time to brainstorm and practice [during the PD] was priceless.” (2018 Participant)

“Aha!” Moment: “[Facilitator] is the penultimate model of creating an exclusive, engaged community of leaders.” (2nd-6th Grade Teacher)
