SKELETON CREW: TEKS ALIGNMENT
Combining our efforts as artists and educators, we aim to help young people grow—as students, as artistic thinkers, and as whole human beings – by exploring and understanding the complex world around them and creating relevant connections between themselves and new ideas.
Live theatre transports us somewhere beyond our own experiences and can offer a safe place to turn a critical eye on difficult themes.
For some, theatre…
Is a practice in Social Emotional Learning and empathy;
Is a mirror that validates their own trials and helps them frame the right questions;
Has the power to encourage critical thinking and start conversations that relate back to your teaching goals and speak directly to how we make sense of a complex society.
This production aligns with the following high school TEKS, to help you plan rigorous curriculum that meets state standards.
