7 into 15: A CRLT Players Theater Performance - GSI session


Using theatre as a means to provoke dialogue, this session will examine how questions of social identity and difference enter Humanities and Social Science classrooms in two major ways: through the course material, and through the embodied experiences of teacher and students. The discussion will center on a performance of Laura Leffler-McCabe and Blake Bolan’s monologue entitled “Failing,” a short play that examines one instructor’s struggle to understand her students’ sometimes surprising responses to the readings she’s assigned. Ultimately, the session will focus on strategies for creating more inclusive learning spaces.
