August 5th from 8:30AM – 5:00 PM Laying the Foundation: Defining Arts Integration This Seminar examines a comprehensive definition for arts integration, principles for how students learn, and how the philosophy and practice of arts integration is supported by current theories about learning. Leave with a shared definition and practice of how to incorporate your art form with school day and other curriculum.
August 6th from 8:30AM – 5:00PM Anatomy of a Lesson: Designing Instruction This session examines the impact of lesson design on teaching effectiveness and student learning. Participants identify the components of effective lessons, see them reflected in a lesson template, and apply their new understandings to plans for their own teaching. Through participation in an example lesson, lively discussions, activities and presentations, participants examine the steps of their own instruction to plan ways to better facilitate student learning. A binder full of valuable resource materials, which documents and extends the Seminar content, is provided. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided both days. On August 5th, meals will be combined with Baltimore City Schools teachers providing an opportunity to meet teachers to develop potential partnerships. Attendance all day for both sessions is required.
