Will Cabell and Deborah Stuart lead a teacher workshop on the use of puppets for expanding classroom lessons focused on reading and language development.

Participating educators will learn to make several kinds of simple puppets (including rod puppets and found-object puppets) and practice techniques for using them to make books come alive and to encourage storytelling and creative self-expression.

Attention will also be given to the use of puppets for social learning and meeting the needs of diverse learners, including children with disabilities and learning challenges.

Workshop Leaders: For over 30 years Will Cabell has been a performer, director and educator using the interdisciplinary arts of puppetry and theater. Will received his M.Ed in Integrated Arts from Plymouth State University and has worked extensively as a teaching artist and trainer. He also served as the art and music teacher at the Monarch School of New England in Rochester, NH, a school for students with special needs.

Deborah Stuart has been involved in arts and education for over 40 years, working with children, artists and teachers. She has led trainings for educators around the world, and was a core faculty member for the VSA Arts Institute: Professional Development in Art, Education and Disability, Deborah served as an editor for “Start with the Arts,” wrote the companion parent book and designed and edited a series of books for teachers and youth workers supporting creative writing in inclusive settings. She is the 2014 recipient of the national VSA Ginny Miller Award for Mentorship.
