Bringing Theater into the Classroom (BTiC)

Teachers participate in a BTiC Workshop
at Seattle Repertory Theatre.

BTiC is a teacher professional development program, developed by 3 Seattle area theaters: Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre and Book-It Repertory Theatre. For the past two years, BTiC has invited Pacific Northwest Ballet to be guest teachers for this program—helping teachers bring dance into the classroom, too!

What is Bringing Theatre into the Classroom [BTiC]?

BTiC is 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 lesson plans. In addition to the hands-on activities, you'll have the opportunity to "try out" curriculum in a supportive environment with professional Teaching Artists and our resident Teen Interns, then walk away with an extensive resource notebook. Clock hours and university credit are available.

How do we "bring it" (into the classroom)?

In addition to the week-long summer intensive, you'll sign up for a one-week follow-up during the school year. A member of the BTiC faculty will travel to your school and work as collaborator, coach, or co-teacher as you integrate lessons learned during the summer workshop into practical lesson plans in your classroom. Over the past 10 years, we have provided over 200 follow-ups for teachers across the state. The follow-up component is essential in helping you to provide quality arts-infused education in your classroom. There is no additional charge for follow-up.
