for classroom teachers
The ArtsCenter offers several opportunities for classroom teachers to enhance and supplement school curriculum with the arts through our Arts In Education Residencies, Professional Development Workshops and School Show Series.
Through Arts In Education Residencies, professional teaching artists come into classrooms to teach specfic curriculum concepts through a specified art form (chosen by the teacher). Professional Development Workshops offer teachers an opportunity to learn how to bring the arts into their classrooms to teach curriuclum. These on-site workshops are hands-on and interactive and can be designed to meet the needs of teachers at a specific school. The School Show Series features curriculum-integrated performances during school hours for preK, elementary, middle and high school students.

Dancing Your Way Through Math!
Monday, June 3, 2013; 6-7:30pm
Teaching Artist: Katie Moorehead
Math and dance might seem like two different worlds, but they are more linked than you might think. Come dance, move and play to learn new strategies for improving your child’s math skills. This workshop will focus on understanding sequences- recognizing patterns, creating and manipulating a series of movements, and then understanding a variety of geometry math concepts. Through movement, you will learn to make number sequencing fun and make multiplication facts more exciting! No dance experience is needed, but be prepared to move around.
Each workshop is $10 (to be paid at the beginning of the workshop) and will take place at The ArtsCenter. You must register in advance by emailing The ArtsCenter’s Arts In Education Coordinator Tracy Thomas at email@example.com. Please include your name, phone number and what you hope to get out of the workshop.
