BOOKS EDUCATION RESOURCE ROOM

The Education Resource Room

One thing I really like about being an education major here at Gannon is that you have the opportunity to begin fieldwork as early as your freshman year. In fact, Gannon requires me to have more field work hours than the Pennsylvania Department of Education does so I am more prepared for student teaching and […]

WERG-FULL

Playlist: WERG Classics

One of my favorite activities on campus was being an on-air personality for WERG. I hosted an air shift where I announced songs, performed music news updates and even voiced a promo. One thing I really liked was that I was able to voice-track a show in advance so I could fit this into my schedule. […]

A Wholesome Saint Patrick’s Day Guide

Saint Patrick’s day is a notorious holiday on college campuses throughout the nation. It is that one day you get a bunch of people without any Irish heritage together dressed in all green and celebrate. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day (even if you don’t have […]

White Snake: (One of) My Last Shows at Gannon

I cannot say this is my last show at Gannon as a student as I will be here for an extra semester, but this is one of them (depending on how hectic student teaching is). This semester, I was an acolyte and in the ensemble for Mary Zimmerman’s “White Snake.” This was the show where my […]

Prethis: Things to Know Before Starting a Communications Thesis

This semester, I started what is perhaps seen as the most difficult, frightening and anxiety inducing classes every theatre or communication arts student has to take at Gannon University. That class is Senior Seminar/Thesis. When I was a freshman, I heard many horror stories and I started to wonder how on Earth I would survive […]

From my experience: Michael’s audition tips

Every summer through middle and high school I participated in the Saltworks Theater camp. At Saltworks, they had an audition and monologues class where they showed me some audition tips I kept with me. After auditioning for more shows and performing, I  have developed my own guide for auditions. Keep practicing those monologues and songs […]

A life-changing guest speaker in my theology class

Every student at Gannon is required to take either “Theology of Moral Response” or “Philosophy of Ethics.” I ended up taking the theology class this semester with Dr. Kerr, who brought in a guest speaker named Miguel. Miguel suffered a broken back in a motorcycle accident and began to realize the discrimination people with disabilities […]

This is why I have to take some science classes, even though I ultimately want to teach English. This semester, I took two of the science classes Middle Level […]
