Each Toolkit, inspired by an A.R.T. season production, includes behind-the-scenes insights, dramaturgical research, and suggested activities to help teach a wide set of topics:  ranging from history to science and engineering.  They are a great way to get your students on their feet and approaching curriculum from a unique, individualized, and impactful perspective.  

Click on the image or title of each Toolkit to read a digital version; you can also download some of the toolkits as a PDF to reproduce at your convenience.

A.R.T. Teaching Artists are happy to consult with you about using arts-based pedagogy to best connect our work on-stage with your work in the classroom. Contact the Education Department with any questions.
