I don’t teach History—although I encourage students to investigate the
social and historical implications of events and how they affect those with
whom we live.
I don’t teach Science—but introduce the analysis of human behavior,
society, and the natural world.
I don’t teach Math—yet evaluating structure, space, and change is a skill
constantly being developed.
I don’t teach the Visual Arts—although calling on the elements of form,
line, shape, color, texture, space, and value is commonplace.
I don’t teach a Foreign Language—but my students learn to decode and
encode dialogue in scripts and plays.
I don’t teach Music—yet rely on the elements of pitch, melody, harmony,
rhythm, dynamics, timbre, texture, and articulation to share this craft.
I don’t teach Technology—but foster the use of tools to control and adapt
to the work we do.
I don’t teach Physical Education— although working as part of a team
while making connections between cognitive functions and physical
movement is a major benefit of this process.
What do I teach at BISS?
I teach Drama.
