Arts In Education

Stories are our primary tools of learning and teaching…They bring order into our confusing world. (Edward Miller).

2021-2022 Arts In Education Outreach

You want to bring the best to your students, but traditional classroom instruction doesn’t always fully engage every student. At Trike Theatre, we help educators activate arts integration strategies to bring the energy, creativity, and passion students need to improve behavior, enhance social and emotional skills, and master their learning goals.

Attend a performance, bring a Trike show to your school, join our monthly professional development sessions, or customize a workshop or residency to meet the needs of your school or organization. You’ll have the opportunity to work with professional, engaging teaching artists who will help you infuse the power of the arts into your curriculum to increase your students’ academic success, cultivate emotional wellbeing, and build 21st century skills like creativity and problem-solving.

Digging Up Arkansas

Starr Theater

January 24-28, 2022 at 9:30am & 11:30am

Best For: Upper Elementary

 

Digging Up Arkansas is an original play that tells the story of three writers from the Federal Writer’s Project. The writers invite students to think about historic artifacts before President Roosevelt’s scheduled arrival in Arkansas and to explore historical Arkansas moments to discover how Communication, Cooperation, Courage and Culture have shaped our state’s history. Topics investigated include Arkansas’ first people, the Arkansas Post, the Civil War, important women’s roles in Arkansas history, music and the introduction of electricity to rural Arkansas. The play aligns with 3rd through 5th grade Arkansas history curriculum goals. Digging Up Arkansas, presented by Walton Arts Center, written by Northwest Arkansas playwright and educator Mike Thomas and performed by Trike Theatre of Bentonville, engages young people in Arkansas history through drama.

What Teachers are saying

  • The experience helped children understand ways to express their feelings that align with the Choose Love movement.

    Kindergarten Teacher
  • My kids knew the story forwards, backwards, and upside down!!!  I had some kids retelling stories that had never done so before.

    PreK Teacher
  • Students being able to hear, see and read immersive language skills was incredible. Majority of our students are ELL (English Language Learners), so it was really sweet to see them lead out on the Spanish reading.

    1st Grade Teacher
  • Trike has exposed my students to live performances, different stories, and vocabulary.
