Workshop Description
This workshop will investigate how arts integration can support comprehension skills.  Drawing from Common Core standards, we will learn strategies in drama, music, visual arts, storytelling and poetry that provide flexible options for students to access curriculum and diverse ways of expressing understanding.  You will see the role of the arts based learning in differentiation and performance assessment.
Variability in learners is a given and arts integration can provide flexible strategies to provide students with more ways to access curriculum, engage with materials and demonstrate understanding.

Strategies Covered
Visual Art Strategy: Bookmaking
Visual Art Strategy: Observational Drawing
Storytelling Strategy: Personal Storytelling
Drama Strategy: Tableaux
Music Strategy: Soundscape
Poetry Strategy: Observation Poems

There is a $20.00 fee that covers the cost of supplies and lunch.
