About the Artist
Playwright, performer, teaching artist, author, Carol Glynn is dynamic, engaging, and energetic. Using her skills in theater, writing and kinesthetic learning, Carol has a host of performances available or can work with class room teachers and students to develop arts integrated residencies that will make learning memorable and real…in any subject! You name it, she does magnets to mythology, Stamp Tax to point of view, place value to digestion! She is an expert in designing residencies to meet your needs. Carol is also in demand around the country for professional development workshops on arts integration.
Bullies, Courage and Other Worries:
Compelling stories, interactive strategies, tips, tools and renewed self esteem wrapped in common sense. (Grade K-5 and families, Grade 5-8 Version Available as well)
Election Extravaganza – Understanding Elections for the Elementary Set!
For this season only, Carol Glynn will combine her Celebrate the Constitution assembly with new entertaining pieces about the history of elections, how they work, and civic duty to participate, for young students. These weighty topics are presented with so much action, fun, singing and audience participation, in a ‘learning while you are having so much fun, you don’t even realize it style’ that’s perfect for elementary students.
The Constitution pieces will include a live student singable Preamble, students acting out the three branches of government, a timeline song with 13 audience members taking us from the colonies through the Declaration of Independence and American Revolution to the Constitution. Add in the Election Extravaganza, and your students will appreciate the process! No specific candidate’s names will be mentioned.
Celebrating the Constitution:
Celebrate the “law of the land”. Understand what the Constitution is, why it was created, the three branches of government, and what the Constitution means to us today. Patriotic, energetic, respectful and fun. (Two versions grades K-4 and 4-6)
Connecticut Legends and Lore:
Students learn local and state history first hand by becoming the Charter Oak, visiting the Leather man, sinking a house in Gardner’s Lake, feeding oysters to George Washington’s horse and getting married at Bride’s Brook. (Grades 3-6 and families)
Fractured and Funky Tales:
Writers enhance their characters with written details. Actors show details using their bodies, faces, and voices. Carol Glynn’s unforgettable characters physically demonstrate the importance of details through these engaging stories and poems. (Grades K-5 and families)
Giant wisdom in small steps, from treasures and trash to manners and math. (Grades K-5)
Let Carol work with your students and teachers for extended visits over a period of days. She can tailor curriculum lessons tied to Common Core using kinethestic teaching methods applied to any subject. Your students will be transformed into real learners, thinkers, and creators by Carol’s ability to reach all students. As one fourth grader from Rogers Magnet School in Stamford CT wrote to Carol: “You made us believe in ourselves.”
Professional Development: “Learning On Their Feet, Kinesthetic Learning
This idea packed workshop will provide teachers with scores of practical curriculum connected dramatic and kinethestic exercises to help students excel in all subjects. Teachers will leave with concrete techniques to help reach all students, even the more challenging active ones. “This was the most valuable workshop I’ve been to in my twenty years of teaching! Carol Glynn should inservice all school systems. What a find!” Jeanne Rago, Resource Room k-6, Enfield CT.
