In providing arts education opportunities that prepare students for success in school, work and life, we know that it is essential to include resources for teachers. We are proud to present our Professional Development series again this year through our partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, focusing on standards-based arts integrated lessons that you can take immediately back to your classroom. CEUs are available for each workshop.
The season begins with a full-day session on the Kennedy Center’s Laying the Foundation: Defining Arts Integration and its application to Readers Theatre and Social Emotional Capacities, providing a strong foundation for the rest of the year. Although this day-long workshop is not required to take additional workshops, it is recommended, especially for those starting their journey with arts integration.
The rest of the season is a series of arts integration strategies in various arts forms and academic areas. From reading and writing to science and math, these workshops are successful methods to teach the curriculum you are already teaching without the extra work. Additionally, after attending each workshop, you have the opportunity to invite our nationally recognized teaching artists into your classroom to model lessons with YOUR STUDENTS—and it’s included in your workshop fee. There are limited opportunities for these Model Lessons, so register early.
