Join us for an interactive professional development opportunity for educators of all grade levels and subject areas. Over the course of this two-day workshop, participants will learn how to use Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) with their students as we consider questions such as: How might classroom teachers expand their repertoire to use the visual arts with their most struggling students? How can educators engage 21st
century learning skills and dispositions with diverse learners? The workshop will focus on open-ended questioning and student-centered facilitation techniques to engage students in group discussion about a carefully selected work of art. This workshop focuses on learning to facilitate VTS image discussions as well as refining that practice over time, so all levels of experience are welcome. Participants will have the opportunity to practice VTS facilitation, will receive access to a well-researched image curriculum, and have the opportunity to reflect on a range of current education topics with colleagues. Participants will receive all curriculum materials, museum admission, and light refreshments.
Workshop attendees earn 13 Professional Growth Plan (PGP) points. Class size is limited: registration required.
