 About Mrs. Marx: I graduated from Rowan University with a B.A. in Theater Arts. I continued my education at Kean University with a B.A. in Teacher of the Handicapped and a M.A. from Marygrove University. I have taught at Linwood for 10 years, and now at NBTHS for 6! I also teach CP English II! I love Theater and I am hoping to share this enthusiasm with your students! I believe that it is my job to create a learning environment that will help each student learn to the best of his/her ability. This includes a wide array of different hands on activities, projects, group work, games, etc. that are geared to each student's individual learning style.

Why Theater.... The purpose of Theatre Workshop I is to increase students' understanding, appreciation, and critical perceptions of a theatrical event. Readings, group activities, written critics and performance will focus on the elements of theatrical practice. An artists and innovators of theatre throughout history; and on the theatre's development as an art form and a social phenomenon; participation in class, discussions, sharing of critiques, and activity sheets will allow students to explore their individual theatrical interests.
