Show Me What You See: An Exploration of Learning in Museums and Learning in Theatre
Chou, Amy; Shih, Janet
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v6 n1 2010
The main goal of this research study is to explore the interconnection between museum learning and theatre learning. We will begin this exploratory process by analyzing the functions of role-playing and improvisation as teaching and learning strategies, and we will then expand this analysis to the idea of storytelling as a link between learning in museums and learning in theatre. Subsequently, the study will be established upon the idea that there is a possible correlation between learning in museums and learning in theatre. Furthermore, the study will investigate how storytelling in dramatic forms, such as a group improvisational performance, can affect students' thought processes regarding a series of images and/or objects in a museum exhibit.
