Our ISTA community is a talented bunch and some have created some stunning websites to share with their fellow theatre teachers and practitioners. This month we celebrate the wonderful theatre websites that have been created by our community members.
Ian Baker – ISTA school member teacher at King George V School, Hong Kong
I started this website as a way of sharing resources and ideas with my IB students. My friend La Mor had started something similar (www.ibtheatrereadingroom.wordpress.com) and I was inspired by her. It became very wide-ranging over time and I really enjoyed the weekly research and trawl through all things theatre around the world.
The site is for everyone – anyone with an interest in theatre. I try to signpost where material might be directly relevant to IB Theatre and I try to use language that addresses that audience. I also wanted to provoke discussion with my students, which is why some of the entries are simply just curation of material. The search facility works well and I rely on that a lot.
I haven’t added to it for a considerable while but I do know what is there remains useful. My students use it all the time. It has become a curated resource bank effectively. I simply stopped adding to it because it became an obsession and I found myself losing my weekends to it entirely!
