About This Program
Welcome to Spoof School, where we make learning fun by ‘making fun’ of our learning! Professional parodist and veteran educator Drew Anderson will teach you how to help your students take their learning into their own hands (and lives) through the gimmick of the mimic. From turning lesson objectives into hooks to converting unit content into whole songs, Spoof School will engage your students’ speaking, listening, paraphrasing, critical thinking and compare/contrast skills through a standards-based, fun approach. It’s Common Core, yet uncommon to the core!
Residencies range in price, from $2,000 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
“Drew Anderson’s creation of C.R.U.N.K Academy is an amazing vehicle to quantify emotions and character traits in a way that the kids can learn, apply and grow. He walked them through the process of experiencing each concept to become more self-aware and respond positively to their environment. By doing so, the kids were fired up and prepared for the two performances we did, thanks to Drew’s direction. Drew has created a great program, and I am glad to have worked with him.”
“Whether it was making up rhymes and raps about multiplication facts or reading a story and teaching characterization by acting out different traits and feelings, teaching with Mr. Anderson was active, meaningful, and engaging!"
