Lindsay Shield’s Classroom

My students need your help! We just got a sewing machine donated to our drama program, but we don’t have any thread or notions! Give back to NYC education. For the next TWO DAYS, any tax-deductible donation to our project http://www.donorschoose.org/lindsay.m.shields gets matched dollar for dollar! Help the next generation of theater professionals!

My students are 11th and 12th graders at a New York inner-city high school of over 3,000 students. They are brave and bold, with 90% receiving free or reduced lunch. This class is comprised of seven different cultural backgrounds. The students have learned to work together as a theatrical ensemble to address social issues. They recently finished film projects on child soldiers, police brutality, and poverty in the U.S. Despite their own personal and financial hardships, they work toward the greater good, illuminating world problems for their peers through drama and film.
