Arts Across the Curriculum
ZACH aims to create a unique theatre experience that ignites the imagination, lifts the spirit, and creates meaningful dialogue that engages our community. ZACH's season of professional theatre productions celebrates diversity and offers a wide array of cross-cultural educational and participatory activities including professional theatre classes and interactive plays for children. ZACH Theatre's Arts Across the Curriculum is an arts integration and professional development program that trains elementary teachers in theatre techniques that actively engage students in language arts, math, science and social studies curriculum. This program will increase service from three Title 1 schools to 16 Title 1 schools, serving 1,500 low-income, at-risk students in 60 classrooms over two years. The goal of this program is to provide arts-rich education resulting in higher grades, test scores and graduation rates.
