We define a Seattle Shakespeare Company residency as three or more class sessions of active, customized curriculum at your school. Professional teaching artists plan with the teacher to tailor each residency to fit the needs and objectives of the classroom.
Residencies are designed to inject vibrant, active exercises into lessons that unlock the text, themes, and actions of a Shakespeare play.
Since every residency is customized, they can vary greatly. See sample residency models.
Seattle Shakespeare Company in-school residencies can be designed to satisfy a number of Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs) in the Arts and Communication. The following Arts EALRs are met by our longer and more comprehensive residencies:
1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4,
2.1, 2.2, 2.3,
4.2, 4.3, 4.4
Pricing for all of our residencies are $100 per teaching artist per hour (one teaching artist can teach up to 30 students). For residencies longer than five days, we will develop a custom pricing scheme.
