It is comprised of representatives from each interest group within TETA. The committee will participate in an annual review and facilitate implementation of curriculum for theatre arts. The operating objectives of the Curriculum Committee are to:

  • Develop rationale to determine effectiveness of present curricula.
  • Develop and make available model lessons.
  • Find methods to emphasize higher level thinking skills through instructional strategy.
