Teaching Approach

Teaching Philosophy + Approach
Seattle Children's Theatre Education Outreach program is dedicated to providing collaborative, active experiences and resources for students, educators, and families. We strive to enhance student understanding of theatre and also support core classroom curriculum and learning.
Curriculum Integration Possibilities
We have developed integrated theatre arts lessons that connect to history, literature, science and math. In a lesson designed for a fourth grade science unit on whales, the students learned vocabulary and concepts—filter, breech, fluke and extinct—through theatre exercises and activities. The theatre concepts --action , actor, body shapes, character, dialogue, emotion, facial expression, freeze, gesture, listening, physical choice, tactics, tableau—were incorporated into the core area of study through verbal repetition and we used tableaus to make a physical connection. The lesson employed formative assessment check points, and pre and post science vocabulary worksheets. The classroom teacher stated that the students were able to recall the words and definitions for many months after the unit had ended. Students had some of their highest scores on the vocabulary test for this unit.
