Professional Development for Teachers

  • Consider ways you can incorporate the arts in your everyday teaching. How might your students benefit from exposure to or experience in dance, music, theatre, or visual art?
  • Think of a favorite painting, play, dance, or piece of music. See if you can find a way to connect it to a subject or unit you currently are teaching. Design a series of lessons incorporating this artwork.
  • Consider how the arts impact the daily lives of your students; for example, in video games or popular fashions. How can you use these everyday art objects to teach subjects such as math, history, and social studies?
