Hi, I'm Richard, an English Language Learner and drama teacher based in a grade 6-8 public school in Berkeley, California. I am a former English Language Fellow and Specialist with the U.S. Department of State in Cambodia where I trained and continue to mentor novice and experienced teachers in various aspects of English Language Teaching methodology and strategies. I also teach English through Drama to High School students in Nansha, China, through the University of California’s Bay Area Writing Project. On this website I share drama based activities and lessons that I have used to introduce, develop and extend English language capacity for all levels of students. I provide video examples of students engaged in the activities where possible. Click on the "start here" button below to go directly to the drama lessons or explore the menu above to see, among other things, a list of workshops that I can provide for your team (the about button) or to see my favorite resources that continue to inspire my work.
