McCarter offers professional learning workshops for classroom teachers and school administrators. These sessions focus on arts integration strategies and drama-based techniques for student exploration and analysis of core curricular subjects, in alignment with the common core learning standards.
Studies have shown that drama-based learning can reach students of all learning styles and deepen student investment and retention of material. With some basic training, sample lesson plans, and creative brainstorming with McCarter's theater education staff, teachers in any subject area can employ some simple drama-based techniques to help activate and deepen their students' understanding.
