With each new production, the C1 Education Team develops articles and lesson plans that connect teachers and student audiences to the world of the play. Through Curricular Connections Packets, conversations that start in the theatre can continue in classrooms, school auditoriums, or community centers.
In the CC Packet for DRY LAND, readers get an inside perspective of the play in an interview between C1 Dramaturg Jessie Baxter and the playwright Ruby Rae Spiegel. The accompanying article provides an introduction to all of the community partners in Boston who have joined C1 for post-show conversations at each performance of DRY LAND. The lesson plan for this packet is structured as a process drama in which teachers and students perform scenes that address teen pregnancy, reproductive health, and societal pressures.
We’re excited to offer this resource to audiences who have already had a chance to see DRY LAND and to those who are still planning their trip to the C1 stage later this month. DRY LAND closes Friday, October 30. Click Here for tickets and showtimes.
