Capstone Project Title
The capstone question addressed in this project was, how can a theater curriculum help students process racial injustice? It chronicles a teacher’s experience teaching a theater class during a pandemic to students in an online distance learning model. The curriculum project utilized different forms of assessments and leaned on the research of Wiggins and McTighe (2008) for creating content based on Understanding by Design as well as the historical documentation of Hollander (1963) and Recchio (2011) to accurately inform students about racism in America as well as specifically within theater. The author details the difficulties of teaching online in addition to the successes of the project and concludes that while teaching about racism is challenging, it is also paramount to the growth of students and the community.
