CTM’s In School Residency Program engages students through interactive theater curriculum in a collaborative and experiential way, enhancing the core values of each classroom culture and igniting an enthusiasm for learning. CTM Teaching Artists will come to your school to facilitate these workshops over the course of several visits.

Character Education

Our Character Education residency promotes a deeper understanding of the themes of collaboration and community through vibrant theater experiences. This residency will focus on students’ social and emotional learning through the lens of Creative Drama and Theater for Social Change to help students connect to and celebrate their communities and their role within them. This residency will provide students an opportunity to share what they’ve learned through scenes and dramatic activities in a classroom context.

Grade: 4K-5 (curriculum is designed for the grade you teach)
Location: Your Classroom!

Teaching Through Theater

Our Teaching Through Theater program is centered in arts integration techniques, which employ the art of theater as a modality for students to demonstrate their understanding of Literacy, Social Studies, and Science. Using theater, storytelling, and movement as a tool to explore other subjects in an interactive way, students will have the opportunity to portray historical figures, literary characters, or scientific concepts. Outcomes are directly connected to Wisconsin State Arts Standards, Common Core Curriculum, and 21st Century Learning Skills. This residency will culminate in a demonstration of the students’ learning through scenes and/or dramatic activities in a classroom context.

Stories on Stage

Our Stories on Stage program brings students into a world outside of their classroom through the process of developing characters and taking on new perspectives by utilizing the tools of an actor (body, voice, and imagination). Through writing activities (depending on age and literacy level), improvisation, and movement, students will activate and explore the world of a story and the experiences of the characters in it. There will be a culminating activity where students will play back what they’ve learned and created.
