Teacher Professional Development Workshop: “Let’s Talk Technical Theater”
Saturday, May 6, 2017 | 10 AM – 1 PM
For educators participating in BLO’s School Partnerships program

As part of the 2016/17 Create Your Own Opera Partnership, BLO offers three Saturday Morning PD sessions.* Over coffee and a light breakfast, BLO’s Resident Teaching Artists and Teaching Artist Special Guests present strategies for teaching and learning focusing on a specific area of the curriculum. They will lead a discussion on the successes and challenges teachers are experiencing in their classrooms. Professional Development Points Available.

In this session, Let’s Talk Technical Theater, participants will:

• Gain some hands-on experience you can apply directly to your opera projects.
• Learn how to work with what you have and make your opera the best it can be!
• Trouble-shoot challenges in your opera creation process with other partnership teachers.

*Note: Past participants may attend the Professional Development Workshops even if they are not participating in the partnership this year. We make every effort to offer skill-building that is applicable beyond the M!W!O! curriculum. Please contact education@blo.org with any questions.
