Why do Canadian teachers love Digital Theatre+?

"Digital Theatre+ has not only helped the class remain engaged, but has allowed us to expand our scope and vision of what it truly means to be part of theatre as a whole."


"The year had many challenges, specifically around delivering enriched theatre-based content to our students within Dramatic Arts. However, Digital Theatre+ solved all those problems and helped deliver thought-provoking discussions, as well as enhancing the learning experience of watching plays. The resources that Digital Theatre+ offered to keep them invested was invaluable. Digital Theatre+ has not only helped the class remain engaged, but has allowed us to expand our scope and vision of what it truly means to be part of theatre as a whole."

"I would use Digital Theatre+ across all of my classes. There are so many resources that would supplement the course material I already teach. The fact that these high-quality resources are gathered in one place will also make planning and gathering material more efficient and enjoyable."

"I have benefitted from the lesson plans included that help me to deepen my own perspectives on the plays I teach. It is also so very good for students to have access to the plays as performed by a diverse collection of actors and directors who interpret the plays from different cultural environments....Students who are looking for the challenge of advanced work in the study of English Literature are also well served by using the additional background material and critical resources that support the productions."
