Home is where the Art is—Lesson Plan 1

Facebook Join My List Logo

HOME is where the ARTS is...

Social Distancing. Working Remotely. Distance Learning.

These phrases are part of our common language in this very uncommon time. They go against our very nature as social beings with the instincts to connect and commune. But they do not mean connection is impossible.

Pushcart Players is sharing virtually what we love to do face to face—use the power of theater to entertain, instruct, and illuminate:

Our production of A MORE PERFECT UNION celebrates the ordinary people and extraordinary events that lead to formulating the United States Constitution. It offers insights to history, social studies, civics, and theater as a combination of every art form.

Over the coming weeks, Pushcart will be sharing this popular production in short segments, accompanied by lesson plans that provide deeper understanding and engagement...and fun. We offer these as resources for not only drama instructors, but also teachers of all subjects, young learners, and family audiences.

We gratefully acknowledge The New Jersey State Bar Foundation ("Informed Citizens Are Better Citizens") for their generous support of this program .

Be well, stay creative!
