Penn State College of Arts and Architecture
Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State


Welcome back teachers! We wish you strength and good energy to focus on the essentials in order to meet the needs of your students and to preserve some “in-school” time for the arts. 

In the 2021–22 season we are continuing to offer School-Time Virtual, a series of free online offerings spanning pre-K through grade 12 with subjects seated in social studies, environmental science, literacy and writing, social-emotional learning — plus map-making and puppetry. 

For each of the three presentations — CartographyDiary of a Wombat, and Small Island Big Song: An Oceanic Songline — teachers will receive two weeks of unlimited access to a prerecorded video link that can be watched all at once, or broken into digital “chapters,” with accompanying discussion questions. 

Additional provided teaching materials point out subject area connections that follow Pennsylvania Standards Aligned System/Academic Standards, Pennsylvania Department of Education and Learning Standards for Early Childhood, Next Generation Science State Standards, and Common Core State Standards. Feel free to adapt materials to suit your teaching needs.
