The August Wilson Education Project
The August Wilson Education Project’s educator toolkits include a free, 37-page interactive guide, “Teaching August Wilson,” and a deck of cards, one for each play in Wilson’s Century Cycle, featuring extension activities for the classroom and beyond. If you haven’t placed an order, it’s not too late.
The toolkit also contains a discussion guide for the upcoming documentary, August Wilson: The Ground On Which I Stand which premieres on PBS’s American Masters on February 20th at 9pm. Facilitate classroom and community conversations about the documentary and August Wilson’s life, work, and impact.
Finally, check out 'The Making of a Playwright,' an informative feature article about August Wilson in the latest Dramatics magazine, a publication of the Educational Theatre Association (ETA). The ETA is a national non-profit organization serving 90,000 student and professional members.
