In this article, I outline and theorize about a series of three lessons on playwriting I conducted in a secondary English Literature classroom in Singapore using drama improvisation strategies that I name drama-based playwriting, or DBP.

Schmidt, Erin Joy – Teaching Artist Journal, 2019
The word "performance" is the basis for our medium. It's what we work toward, look forward to, and talk about with endless fervor. But does this word, this concept, this idea, actually stifle learning, artistic expression, and growth? As a director and professor of theatre for the past 13 years, I have watched this word become the knave…

Robinson, Shantay – Teaching Artist Journal, 2019
As the arts are integral to shaping our culture, rigorous education that will prepare art students to create compelling artworks is necessary. Employing a tool such as Bloom's Taxonomy aids instructors in creating assignments that fulfill high-order concerns in the art-writing classroom. Because writing is one way for would-be artists to shape…

Nguyen, Thanh – Teaching Artist Journal, 2019
Students in P-12 schools are losing access to the benefits of arts education. As more students identify as minority, the predominantly White teachers are not keeping pace to reflect students. Communities partner with nonprofit theatres, who staff programs with teaching artists. Teaching artists of color are necessary to reflect today's classrooms.…

Bukovec, Anamarija; Potocnik, Robert – Teaching Artist Journal, 2019
Because drawing with a pencil is a basic but often ignored or underestimated rendering skill, we offered a didactic aid--the teaching artist's monochrome picture book--to elementary school third graders for their visual art classes (N = 25, between 8 and 9 years of age). On the basis of the created works of visual art and the transcribed…
