Signature Theatre is looking for experienced, sensitive and innovative teaching artists for satellite Signature in the Schools workshops in Northern Virginia schools. Teaching artists will use theatrical skills to prepare high school students from a wide variety of classroom settings attending field trip performances of the 2019-20 Signature in the Schools production, which explores what it means to be a citizen and the power of the vote in America.
Teaching artists will collaborate with Signature’s Education Department to develop curriculum. Satellite teaching will take place from January through mid-February in classrooms across Northern Virginia. Applicants should have experience teaching theatre and should feel confident in their abilities to teach other subjects (particularly history and sociology) through theatrical skills. We do not expect teaching artists to be experts in the subject matter but teaching artists should feel confident in their ability to learn the subject matter and to teach it effectively. All teaching artists will receive training on subject matter and prepared lesson materials before teaching any workshops.
Signature Theatre offers a competitive hourly rate in addition to complimentary and discounted ticket offers.
Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and sample hour-length lesson plan to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signature Theatre is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
