Highways, Byways and School Assembly Performers

Posted on Fri, Dec 12, 2014

Today marks an anniversary in Chicago, Illinois. On this day in 1961, the first section of the Dan Ryan Expressway was opened.  Mobile Ed performers are very familiar with the Dan Ryan, as we travel it often bringing our assembly programs into Chicago from Michigan or where ever they have been the week before.

Just Like Clockwork!

Posted on Tue, Dec 2, 2014

Don’t you just love to be able to say that? Whenever we are involved in any project and we can say that we feel great. As a school show presenter, I like to put the key into the ignition of my Ford one-ton van after loading up all my equipment and have the feeling everything went “just like clockwork”. That would mean a minimum of proper planning and communication would have been executed by a number of key players. Let’s look at all of the individuals and their roles to make this happen.

What is an IHFT?

Posted on Tue, Nov 25, 2014

Kids love an IHFT. Teachers love an IHFT. Parent/teacher organizations love an IHFT.  So what is an IHFT? The acronym stands for In House Field Trip!  So why have an IHFT instead of the standard field trip because students love those too?

With Today’s Emphasis on Science and Math, Why Choose a Historical Character?

Posted on Tue, Nov 18, 2014

I think that is an honest question that I am dying to answer.  Most people will confess that history was boring to them in school. I am one of those.  My son and my wife are just the opposite. They LOVE history. I wish I had too.  I believe if I had been exposed to a few assembly programs featuring believable historical characters that were interesting, held my attention, carried me to their time in history, and challenged my thinking, I would have had a totally different attitude as I entered the history classroom.

Posted on Tue, Nov 11, 2014

For 5 years, Lawrence C. Garnell Jr. toured the nation with Mobile Ed Productions performing and training other actors in our acclaimed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. assembly program.  Mr. Garnell was very successful with the program and says, "Without the training I received from the tour and being on the road, I would not have developed the discipline in performing under varied conditions."

Here Comes Those Big White Vans!

Posted on Tue, Nov 4, 2014

In the past few years, large cargo-style white vans have been associated with abductions and sniper serial killers. Yet 999.99% of these type of vans belong to contractors, repair men, delivery companies, and a plethora of honest and needed resources to keep America going. One of the most unique and important user of these suspicious vehicles is the educational school show presenter. For them it is a necessary means of transportation and way to transport these amazing and entertaining props used in their educational assemblies presentation.

Bullying Assemblies Not Just For Students

Posted on Fri, Oct 17, 2014

I have been performing the Stronger Than A Bully assembly show for a few years now and have always received positive responses from the teachers and faculty.  Anytime a performer receives a nice comment as the teachers exit the auditorium, it adds a bit of icing on the cake. We watch the faces and reactions constantly during the performance to check for attention level and to see if they are getting the message. And to be honest, we watch the faculty as well.
