TIGER is an interdisciplinary project combining elements of music, movement, theater, visual arts, education and social change. The show is entering its 13th season offering educational performances, workshops, and resource materials to schools and communities. It is valued for its local and global impact on helping school age learners and communities understand bullying and other social issues. Professors Lindberg, Waltman, and Lind will invite PSU graduate students in Integrated Arts, School Counseling, School Psychology, and Education, and undergraduate students in Education and Social Work and working school professionals to view a spring showing of TIGER on campus. The audience will be asked to provide constructive feedback to inform the next iteration of TIGER. Before the performance, participants will be asked to complete a brief anonymous questionnaire regarding their knowledge and experience with bullying and other social pressures experienced by school-age learners. Participants will be provided a list of resources to review before the event. Following the performance participants will be asked to provide feedback. A brief post-experience questionnaire will be collected from participants. The feedback collected will be used by the Playwright/Director of TIGER to revise/update the show during the summer of 2017.
The purpose will be to explore current topics around bullying and school climate to assist in the use of timely material in the show. The show is revised every two years. It is believed that the best source of information is current and future consumers. Therefore, current students preparing to be school professionals and behavioral health providers and professional members of local school communities will be excellent resources.
