K-12 Residency program

During our K-12 residencies, we partner with teachers to design a series of in-class workshops in any subject focused around a specific art form in theatre, dance, visual art or music. The workshops, led by trained DIAE Teaching Artists, are hands-on and experiential -- not lecture -- allowing students a deeper and more personal arts experience while exercising critical thinking skills. The culminating event of each residency is a live performance that showcases high quality artists and performers from around the country.

Delaware Wolf Trap (DWT) was established in 1998 and is modeled after the Wolf Trap Institute For Early Learning Through the Arts in Vienna, Virginia. DWT places professional actors, musicians and dancers, who are also trained Teaching Artists, in classroom residencies to work with children through drama, music and movement. The program has two purposes: to engage preschool children with arts activities to promote literacy and STEM development, and to train early childhood educators to integrate performing arts techniques into their curriculum. All residencies occur over a six week period and consist of 12 in-class workshop sessions and four planning sessions with the teacher.

In 2013, DIAE introduced the Early STEM/Arts residency program to Delaware pre-K classrooms. The primary goal of the Early STEM/arts program is to help preschool children develop skills in math and geometry by allowing them to explore abstract concepts in concrete ways through arts activities -- geometry utilized in dance; spatial relations and measurement demonstrated in storytelling; or language developed and enhanced through drama and music. As of June 2015, DIAE has conducted 32 Early STEM residencies reaching some 800 Head Start children.

Our third program provides teachers with professional development opportunities to explore aesthetic methods of integrating arts into their classroom by offering one-day workshops year round. The workshops can also be used for DOE teacher re-certification. Besides our one-day workshops during the school year, every June we conduct a weeklong series of full day teacher workshops where each day teachers are led through an in-depth exploration of a specific arts form in dance, theatre, music or visual art.

Teacher development is also a major part of our Wolf Trap program. Our TAs work closely with teachers to help them feel secure with integrating arts activities into their lessons. Over the course of the residency, teachers observe how drama, music and movement can be used to explore abstract math concepts. Gradually, the teacher will begin to take the lead in planning and executing these lessons so that he or she develops confidence in integrating the arts on their own. After the residency is completed, the TA remains in contact with the teacher to offer support and guidance. Teachers are also supported through the Wolf Tap Institute’s website which offers teachers year round resources in ideas for lesson planning.
