Study Guides and Outreach
Why Study Guides?
Our Study Guides empower teachers and parents with customized lesson plans, concrete examples of cross-curriculum learning and specified arts integration techniques, while challenging students of all ages to bridge their arts experiences with current educational standards.
Created in partnership by BCT’s Director of Education and the Alabama Institute for Education in the Arts, all BCT Study Guides are tailored for each PreK-8th grade classroom and are carefully designed to include both National Arts Standards and State curriculum standards outlined by the Alabama Course of Study. These well researched resources are free for all BCT productions and are sure to become a key in-school component for supporting and sustaining arts education both in and out of the classroom.
