With students at home and caregivers balancing work and school, everyone is adjusting and learning. We want to offer a few simple, creative, educational, and arts-based ways to spice up your distance learning – especially since the day might involve a lot of sitting.
On that note, a huge thank you to all the teachers trying to figure this out with short notice and high stakes.
ROLE ON THE WALL
Posted Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Today’s at-home arts integration strategy is Role on the Wall. This activity has its roots in character analysis – something that actors, directors, playwrights, and designers do on every play they create. Role on the Wall is a fun way to help kids share a) what they know about a character/person and b) what ways the character is influenced by external forces. This activity is also a helpful way to check in on how kids might be feeling at this moment in time.
The directions for the activity are shared in two ways – for caregivers/teachers and for kids who can read so they can do the activity independently.
We’d love to see you share a photo of your Role on the Wall on our post so that others can join in your learning.
Here are some examples
