ICI INSTITUTE 2013 COURSE SCHEDULE

 

 

THURSDAY, JUNE 13th

 

Thursday 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM : MINI COURSE #1

 

MC 1:    Bringing the Watershed to Life (Music/Theatre & Science/ELA) – Althea Jerome & Kathryn Lewis

Did you ever wonder if paper wasps recycle? Did you know that the Gulf Sturgeon has been around for 200 million years? Do you know what a watershed is? In this workshop participants will learn about the water cycle and the importance of watersheds to all of us. Learning strategies introduced will increase appreciation for conservation of the environment, which includes the plants, insects, fish and animals that are found in nearby watersheds. Common Core State Standards in language arts are addressed in a non-fiction informational text, along with standards in science and the visual and performing arts. Workshop participants will receive a copy of the book The Watershed and Me...A-Z as part of the experience.

 

MC 2:    Making Artful Connections in Math (Visual Arts & Math) – Heather Muntzer

Discover a variety of ways to demonstrate and explore Common Core math standards through the visual arts. In this hands-on workshop you will explore the visual arts elements and practice using them to illustrate math concepts. Learn about and experience strategies for handling and supporting arts supplies in the classrooms through modeling and participation. Develop and identify strategies for reflecting on and assessing the lessons. You will leave with a math art portfolio of your own to use when planning or sharing lessons when you get back to the classroom.

 

MC 3:    History Personified (Theatre & Social Studies) – Bonnie Gabel

Bring history alive for your students through character building performance and design activities! Learn theater strategies designed to help students develop a closer personal relationship with history by embodying fictional historical characters of their own creation.  A series of exercises will explore costume design, imaginary body, and scriptwriting to foster a deeper understanding of ELA and social studies concepts. 

 

 

FRIDAY, JUNE 14th

 

Friday 9:45 AM – 12:15 PM : MINI COURSE #2

 

MC 1:    Bringing the Watershed to Life (Music/Theatre & Science/ELA) – Althea Jerome & Kathryn Lewis

See description above.

 

MC 2:    Reaching the Kinesthetic Learner through Movement & Creative Dance (Dance & Cross-Curricular) – Kimberli Boyd

[All participants must register for this workshop at least once during the Institute – it is offered in three different time slots. This is the first time slot it is offered.]

Children love to move! Creative movement provides an opportunity to reach kinesthetic learners in a way that allows them to process and retain information efficiently.  Join dance teaching artist Kimberli Boyd to explore warm-ups, improvisation, and simple structures for composing dances that involve students in active learning.

 

MC 3:    Treasure Hunt! Creating Maps that Support Integrated Teaching (Visual Arts & Science/ELA) – Sasha Nick & Kessler Reed

Connecting core subject areas to an imaginary journey is a proven way to inspire and motivate students.  Educator Kessler Reed and Teaching Artist Sasha Nick team up to share their experiences using map-making as a way to teach content across the curriculum.  While students learn about the compass rose, cardinal directions, map keys and land forms, they explore art features of color, line, shape, patterns, composition and more! Participants will also learn how to challenge writing skills with visual prompts and provide a safe environment for personal choice. Geography, social living, language arts, visual art, even math are areas integrated with this activity! 

 

Friday 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM : ARTS EXPERIENCE

Arts Experiences allow participants to explore an art form in a way that can be transferred to the classroom.

 

AX 1:      The Fundamentals of Music (Music) – Joel Willson

Not a musician? Not a problem! Join Joel Willson as he leads participants through an hour-long journey into making music. This workshop is for beginners and experts alike, as everyone comes together to make some noise!

 

AX 2:      Composing with Paper (Visual Arts) – Jenna Bonistalli

In this workshop, we will reflect on master works of collage by artist Benny Andrews. Through this process, we will use ELA based techniques for observing and writing about a work of art. Then, we will explore the materiality of the medium on our own. Using the elements and principles of design as a lens, we will experiment while creating our own compositions, playing with color, shape and texture.

 

AX 3:      The Art of Improvisation (Theatre) – Andy Vaught

Get ready to tickle your funny bone as award-winning Actor and Teaching Artist Andy Vaught takes participants on a journey through the joys of unscripted acting. Teachers will learn the basics of improv, including the ‘Rule of Yes’, and take away some great theatre exercises for the classroom.

 

Friday 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM : MINI COURSE #3

 

MC 1:    Common Core Songwriting (Music & ELA) – Joel Willson

This workshop focuses on how to easily make music-integrated curriculum a reality in the classroom.  Learn the three fundamentals that make up music (rhythm, melody, and dynamics) and immediately apply your knowledge to the creation of songs integrating fiction and nonfiction texts (perfect for Common Core).  Leave this workshop humming and ready to begin integrating music into your instruction.

 

MC 2:    Reaching the Kinesthetic Learner through Movement & Creative Dance (Dance & Cross-Curricular) – Kimberli Boyd

[All participants must register for this workshop at least once during the Institute – it is offered in three different time slots. This is the second time slot it is offered.]

See description above.

 

MC 3:    Creative Classroom:Louisiana Voices (Folk Arts/Visual Arts/Theatre & Social Studies/ELA) – Andy Vaught & Jenna Bonistalli

Daily life in Louisiana is rich in expressive culture. This interactive workshop will introduce you to Creative Classroom an arts integrated unit exploring the folklife in the diverse regions of the state. Based on the rich online resource of Louisiana Voices, Creative Classroom begins with students using visual arts to explore the creation of landscapes that both mimic and represent the various environments around them.  Students will then use their “backdrops” to inform the creation of original dramatic works that speak to the cultures of the people living in the environments that they have created.  These fun, hands-on, and student-centered techniques will be sure to activate learning for your students. The resources and strategies open a world of possibilities in teaching Common Core aligned ELA and social studies. Lessons and materials can be adapted for grade levels 2-8.  

 

SATURDAY, JUNE 15th

MC1:     The Harlem Renaissance Project (Puppetry & Social Studies) – Karen Konnerth

Explore shadow puppetry in the workshop by Karen Konnerth, targeted to grades 2 through 5 on The Great Migration and The Harlem Renaissance.  Learn how creative choices were made on matching student art experience with curriculum points and then experience the process of bringing social studies to life as shadow puppetry.   This process allows you, then your students, to create collaborative scenes from the Great Migration and The Harlem Renaissance using techniques available to every classroom.

 

MC2:     Reaching the Kinesthetic Learner through Movement & Creative Dance (Dance & Cross-Curricular) – Kimberli Boyd

[All participants must register for this workshop at least once during the Institute – it is offered in three different time slots. This is the third time slot it is offered.]

MC3:     Words in Motion: Bringing Nonfiction Writing to Life Through Dance (Dance & ELA) – Laura Stein

Enhance your students’ ability to read, write and comprehend nonfiction texts through dance! Three foundational movement concepts – shapes, gestures and phrases – are introduced to increase student engagement with a variety of texts.  Each step of the ELA -dance integration process will be explored: interpreting nouns, verbs and adjectives through movement, pairing a text phrase with a movement phrase, and expressing the meaning behind a nonfiction passage through dance. This arts integration technique is both effective and joyful, allowing students to connect their mind and body in a structured environment. Teachers will leave with a CD of kid-friendly music they can use in their classroom.
