Teacher Certification Program at University of Mount Union, Alliance, OH
The Teacher Certification Program in the Michael Chekhov Technique is the chief focus of GLMCC. Upon successful completion of the three Module structure participants are awarded certification through the University of Mount Union and the Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium. This program is the only one of its kind to offer certification in the M. Chekhov Technique through an institute of higher learning.
The Founding Directors of GLMCC believe that a certification program in the technique is of vital importance to reach Chekhov’s goal of “ideal theatre.” At GLMCC we teach teachers and those who may teach in future. Teachers introduce the work to students and the technique grows boundlessly.
To be certified, participants complete three Modules of work over a three summer period. It is a sequential program and all participants meet during the same week working in separate spaces. There are other assignments during the year including submitting lesson plans and reflection papers which GLMCC evaluates as part of the certification process.
When we meet in summer for the conference we work from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The work is intense and rewardingly exhausting. There are numerous sessions throughout the day and week which follows a curriculum carefully designed by the Master Teachers of GLMCC. The curriculum follows Michael Chekhov’s, To the Actor, from Introduction through Composition under the expertise of Certified Master Teachers, Assistant Certified Teachers and Certified Associate Artists.
As the conference is focused on teaching the technique there are numerous ‘spy-back’ sessions and participants in Modules 2 and 3 have opportunities to teach to their peers. The teaching sessions are evaluated by faculty and results are shared with participants. At midpoint during the conference participants meet one-on-one with faculty for individual evaluation.
GLMCC welcomes participants who have some background in the M. Chekhov Technique, have a passion for teaching, and willing to be part of a strong ensemble.
