This course offers Lang students the opportunity to mentor elementary school students through the "I Have a Dream: Harlem" afterschool drama/literacy program at P. S. 7, located at 160 East 120th St. In the Monday seminar sessions at Lang, students will be exposed to critical pedagogy and transformative arts education as they explore the field of theater in education. On Wednesday afternoons Lang students work directly with third- and fourth-grade students in Harlem to develop a curriculum for their small drama groups. At the end of the semester Lang students will help facilitate a performance by their IHD-Harlem students for their families and community. Coursework also includes regular journal entries, a midterm research paper, and a final project. This course fulfills the civic engagement requirement for Theater majors.
