Reflection: Learning Communities Tableau Vivant: Living Pictures in "Macbeth" - Section 6: Living Pictures Take to the Stage


In my district I am forced to attend PLCs. I have a deep-seeded distaste for forced, contrived collaboration. On the other hand, I constantly seek opportunities to collaborate. That's why I contacted Peggy O'Brien, the director of education at The Folger Shakespeare Library, and asked her to help me acquire "Macbeth's Comic Songs." She put me in touch with Tim Guillot, and he emailed the recording I used in the Animoto to me. That's my kind of collaboration. When forced to collaborate, I'd rather go to the dentist.
