Partnership Programs

Bringing Theatre into the Classroom (BTiC)

Make every subject come alive. Join us for an engaging, fun, five-day intensive summer workshop that will teach you ways to integrate drama into your entire curriculum. First-hand involvement allows time to test ideas and build them into workable, practical units. Teachers have the opportunity to “try out” curriculum in a supportive environment and walk away with an extensive resource notebook. Teaching artists will follow-up this experience by spending five hours in your classroom during the coming year. Clock hours and university credit are available. Click here for more information and to apply.

Washington State Teaching Artist Training Lab (TATLab)

An seven-month professional development program with a focus on supporting arts education from all artistic disciplines as part of basic education in K-12 schools.  Click here for more information.


"Thank you for all the amazing things I learned at the workshop. You made all those risk-taking activities more comfortable." - 8th grade teacher in Seattle

“My own learning has benefited through years of being fortunate enough to have SCT professional development at our school.  This year, I had the kids act out a sequence of events from a nonfiction text with me.  Their understanding increased because I had an engaging way to review the text.  That is all thanks to my learning from the SCT Teaching Artists.”3rd Grade Educator
