Theater teachers are forced to adapt constantly. Whether responding to advancing technologies, cuts to (or the growth of) their program, or ever-changing governmental mandates, they struggle to serve both their students and their craft. Using a theater arts program at one at a Midwestern high school, this book explores how change, good or ill, directly impacts students as well as teachers. Building on the work of the previous edition of Temporary Stages, Jo Beth Gonzalez shows teachers how to sustain confidence and outlines “critically conscious” teaching, a technique that encourages students to practice self-agency and critical awareness. Essential reading for all theater teachers, this indispensable resource is a font of innovative classroom and production practices.
Jo Beth Gonzalez has been a classroom teacher of speech, English, and theatre for twenty-seven years, the past nineteen at Bowling Green High School in Ohio, where she also directs the theater program.
