Arts Integration Series: Enhancing Literacy Through Art:
National Writing Project hosted by Carroll University at the Museum
March 7 & 21, 2015,
9 AM–3 PM
Using the Museum as inspiration, teachers will focus on aspects of writing (including editing and assessment), demonstrate writing-to-learn strategies to support student understanding, and explore ways to motivate students to become better, more powerful readers and writers. For more details, download National Writing Project (PDF).
During this two-day program, teachers will use the artwork in the Museum’s Collection as inspiration as they engage in writing strategies they can implement immediately into the classroom. They will receive support for reluctant writers and readers, and ideas for integrating writing and visual representation into any curriculum. Graduate credit is available; please see registration form for details. Space fills quickly; register early.
- Teachers of all grades/subjects, $150 per teacher
