Introduction To Theater Blueprint professional development
The Office of the Arts and Special Projects provides citywide
professional development in the implementation of the Blueprint
for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Professional development
sessions are led by master teachers—outstanding public
school arts teachers identified by the DOE—and teaching
artists—professional artists from local cultural organizations.
During these sessions, teachers explore the five Blueprint
strands of arts education and learn strategies for lesson plan
building and engaging children in the arts. Teachers participate
in hands-on projects, allowing them to directly apply the lessons
learned at training sessions to their classrooms.

THE ART OF TEACHING Theater: IMPACTING ARTS TEACHER PRACTICE TO IMPROVE STUDENT LEARNING
Workshop is at maximum capacity.
Theater Teachers receive significant professional development through active skills and content-based workshops, facilitated professional conversations with peers and dedicated time to reflect on what an excellent theater program in their school should encompass. Through this three-part series, participants are engaged as theater artists as well as educators—sharing their own expertise while learning from peers and professionals. The series continues to address components of Teacher Effectiveness including engaging students, designing clear curriculum and incorporating assessment for instruction.
