All The World’s A Stage offers two professional development programs:

Partnership Development: An overview of arts education partnership development for schools considering partnering with an outside arts organization. Examine the educational benefits of an arts education partnership, and the process for successful development.

Classroom Teacher Training: A drama education program for teachers with little or no drama background. Explore activities and management strategies that can be integrated into your classroom immediately. 

Our professional development programs have been designed based on our work and training with arts education consultant, Karen L. Erickson, (Creative Directions and the Kennedy Center’s Arts Education Alliance).
