Reflection: Trust and Respect Acting Companies, Rehearsals and Dress Rehearsal (Days 2-4) - Section 2: Rehearsal Time


Like many teachers I know, I like to be in charge.  However, I know that students need to be given opportunities to plan, make decisions, and take risks.  In fact, it is much better for them to be encouraged to try new things than it is for them to be drawn through every perfect activity by an adult who has done all of this many times before.

But, it's hard.  While I know that they learn from mistakes, I don't want them to fail.  While I don't need for every performance to be flawless, I don't want them to be embarrassed in front of their peers.  Granted, we are doing these performances fairly late in the year (so we all know each other and are fairly comfortable,) but I want everyone to have a moment...even if it is a tiny one.
