Program and Curriculum Design
Sessions delivered either one-on-one or with a team to develop and customize curricula to reflect the needs of all students. This includes aligning with the California Arts Standards, addressing equity issues, and ensuring the program design reflects the diversity of all students and their social-emotional developmental needs.
Through a Theatrical Lens
A theatre workshop or residency providing interactive integrated arts instruction for students or professional development for teachers focused on social-emotional learning and literacy.
Through engaging in the elements of theatre and its collaborative nature, students are given the opportunity to become more self-aware, increase their ability to self-manage themselves, build relationship skills and become more socially aware of others and the world around them. They will apply theatre strategies to identify main ideas in content, the sequencing of events, probe for deeper meaning, empathize and improve their literacy skills (reading, writing, listening, viewing).
Teachers are given the opportunity to experience the transformational power of engaging in the arts and are given theatre-based strategies and social-emotional healing-based resources to integrate into their classroom instruction.
