Event description

Description

Teachers can translate many basic concepts in science into meaningful, self-assessing movement activities that put abstract ideas into tangible, visible form. In lessons that engage students in movement, participants learn the elements of dance and how those elements relate to scientific content. Participants leave the workshop with a set of immediately useful movement activities for classroom study of the water cycle and the systems of the human body, along with the skills necessary to adapt those activities to teach other curriculum ideas. Randy Barron guides teachers in easy-to-duplicate lesson plans, which draw upon students’ kinesthetic, visual, and musical intelligence to increase their achievement in science and strengthen their repertoire of learning and social skills.

This workshop is most valuable for teachers of grades 3-12.

This workshop is presented by Randy Barron, a Kennedy Center Teaching Artist since 1995. For over thirty years, he has designed and led arts-integrated residencies for students, as well as over two hundred professional development workshops for teachers across thirty-six states, in addition to having written arts curriculum affecting over 250,000 students in both urban and rural school districts. Randy danced and choreographed professionally with ballet and modern dance companies across the United States and was the Executive Artistic Director of City in Motion Dance Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. Randy has a wide range of experience in education. He has been a charter high school director, a charter school founder, a curriculum writer, and even a school bus driver. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Rockhurst University, and is a former volunteer firefighter / EMT. Randy lives on the Santa Fe Trail in northeastern New Mexico, with his wife and five dogs, near their identical twin grand-daughters.
