10th Street, NW closure

Due to utility work, the intersection of 10th Street and F Street is currently closed and inaccessible to vehicular traffic. The Atlantic Building parking garage can be accessed by turning north on 10th Street from E Street NW. Please use extreme caution when accessing the garage as the block serves 2-way traffic during this closure. Please allow for extra time to arrive at the museum and theatre. It is expected the intersection will reopen in late August.

Find classroom resources to help students understand the complex themes in the classic American drama Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller.

Our production resources incorporate ELA and Social Studies curricula, and adhere to Common Core standards. We offer pre-show materials, such as a synopsis and character descriptions, and interactive post-show activities. Print out copies of our Student Program to share on the bus ride home from the show. Afterwards, engage in a grade-appropriate lesson plan or guided discussion to help students reflect upon their experience.

Common Core Standards:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.8.7

Analyze the extent to which a filmed or live production of a story or drama stays faithful to or departs from the text or script, evaluating the choices made by the director or actors.

CSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.7
