Trainings for Classroom Teachers

We love working with school communities to provide teachers with support in the area of integrating theatre strategies into K-8th grade core curricular concepts and skills. We develop dynamic educational theatre training workshops and series that support school communities, fully equipped with dialogue around student engagement, assessment and differentiation. DreamBox programs result in a deeper teacher/ student interaction with the art form: theatre, movement, music and even some visual arts. The trainings are on-your-feet, interactive and the strategies are relevant, practical and effective. Workshops can take on a variety of forms (some including students and some just with teachers). The model and duration of the workshops are determined based upon the topic and the learning objective.
