Bringing Theatre Into the Classroom

Professional Development for K-12 teachers at Seattle Repertory Theatre
July 9-13 2018

Seattle Children’s Theatre partners with Book-It Repertory Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Seattle Repertory Theatre to help bring you professional development that features “We offer workshops for 10-40 participants for two hour sessions or longer.” This is a perfect workshop for an in-service day.

Bringing Theatre into the Classroom or “BTiC” is an engaging, fun, five-day professional development intensive for K-12 teachers that will equip you with the tools and skills to integrate drama into your entire curriculum. During the hands-on workshops offered throughout the week, you’ll try out curriculum in a supportive environment with professional Teaching Artists and colleagues, then walk away with a resource notebook of detailed, easy-to follow lesson plans and activities.

After the summer intensive, you’ll sign up for a follow-up consultation during the school year. Whenever possible, a BTiC faculty member will travel to your school to work with you as a collaborator, coach and co-teacher, to integrate lessons learned during the summer workshop into practical lesson plans for your classroom.

The program is open to K-12 educators.

“Best PD I have done in eight years!” – 2016 BTiC participant

“In teaching, we talk about the zone of PD and how there is only so much you can learn at any given time. This is my 4th year and every time I come back, I can add a little more and more. My 1st year, I introduced a little bit of it [BTiC concepts] but I was really nervous. I got such good feedback from the kids – they absolutely loved it. It’s given me the courage to introduce more and more elements. Sometimes we forget those great ideas. And then I get reminded of it” – 2015 BTiC participant

“[The best part was] Experiencing the lessons firsthand instead of just sitting around hearing about them; getting to work with teachers from a wide range of school districts and grade levels/content areas; The awesome staff!” – 2017 BTiC participant
