Raven Radio Theater
in the Classroom
An innovative “hands-on” workshop for
elementary and secondary school teachers
An innovative “hands-on” workshop for elementary and secondary school teachers shows how radio theater can be used to integrate the language arts, history, science, health, and arts curricula while fostering cooperation and imagination in young people. Using an EARS™ kit, a unique, easy-to-use, portable recording studio designed specifically for educators by the Raven Radio Theater, workshop participants learn all aspects of radio theater production including script writing, casting, how to find or make sound effects, and performance and recording techniques. Under the direction of noted writer/director Joe McHugh, participants have fun learning how to produce in the classroom high-quality radio plays with their students which can be enjoyed later by other students, family and friends or broadcast to the community over a local radio station.
An entertaining illustrated guide, “The Raven Radio Theater Cookbook, Recipes for the Imagination” is provided to each participant along with a comprehensive list of radio theater resources from around the world.
