Description

Workshop for Classroom Teachers and Teaching Artists interested exploring Arts Integration.

Many professional development programs are based on a philosophy and practice of teaching called arts integration.

So what is arts integration? This session unpacks the definition the Kennedy Center developed and gives you the opportunity to uncover the characteristics of quality integration. In addition, the session includes your participation in an arts-integrated lesson and examines how arts-integrated instruction aligns with current learning principles and best practice.

Kennedy Center Presenter Melanie Rick is a National Board Certified Teacher, certified Reading Specialist, co-owner and senior arts integration consultant for Focus 5, Inc. She designs and leads workshops, in-depth courses, and summer institutes focused on aligning arts integration, best instructional practices, and current research in the fields of arts and education.

Melanie holds a MA in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction from Virginia Tech and BA in Elementary and Special Education from Clemson University. She has twenty years of experience integrating the arts with general education, special education and English Language Learners. She has been a classroom teacher in 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th grades as well as an arts integration specialist in a Title I arts magnet school.
