The Arthur Miller Theater Education Program will provide significant mentorship, training, and support for new theater teachers, increasing the number of New York City public school students with access to a dedicated theater education. In partnership with the Office of Arts, this comprehensive program seeks to establish sustainable theater programs in schools throughout the city.
The Theater Education program provides the following methods of support for first and second year theater teachers selected to participate in the program:
- A Mentorship Program for new theater teachers to support their development of curriculum and teaching skills under the guidance of experienced mentor teachers and artists
- Resources including curriculum toolkits and funds for field trips to New York's theater-based cultural institutions
- Teaching Artist Residencies in classrooms to partner new theater teachers with NYC's most celebrated cultural institutions and arts educators
- Theater tickets and special events for participating teachers to attend professional performances and networking events
Participants for this program will be selected through an application process open to teachers entering their first and second years as full-time DOE certified theater teachers.
