Professional Development for Teachers
- Work with your arts specialists to present a workshop or series
of workshops for classroom teachers to learn arts-based skills they
can use in their classrooms; for example, drawing and painting techniques,
theatre exercises, or skills in listening to and interpreting music.
- See what resources for acquiring arts-based teaching skills are
offered by museums, theatre and dance groups, and orchestras in your
area. If no such training exists, ask a local group to help you develop
- As a mixed group of specialists and classroom teachers, visit
a museum, concert, or play. Afterward, discuss the experience from
your various perspectives.
