Using digital technology, Global Classroom connects local students and those beyond our region and country with theater and literature.

Prime Stage Global Classroom

Pittsburgh, PA
Global Classroom makes cultural connections through arts-based literacy strategies with schools beyond region and country. Prime Stage selects a work of literature in our season and uses video conference technology to connect students and teachers as they discuss the story and share their cultures. To date, we have connected with schools in Belfast, Israel and in the Dominican Republic.
Introduction

Prime Stage Global Classroom

“Students recognize how literature affects their life as they recognize how cultures bring literature to life.” “Students feel proud of who they are and where they come from. THANK YOU! ”

Wayne Brinda, Ed.D. Producing Artistic Director Prime Stage

What we do?
Bring literature to life and raise awareness of other cultures by creating opportunities for in-depth discussions in real time among local students and those in other countries using video digital technology. 

Why we do it?
This meets our company's mission to engage, educate and entertain as we create opportunities for learning, sharing and life-long cultural connections and awareness among adolescents using works of literature in the middle and high school curriculum and the theater.
