THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
Join KQED and the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts for a 3-day professional development institute on integreating performing arts into multiple subjects, including social studies, language arts, and math.
The instute will take place from 9am - 4pm on June 10, 11, and 12. It is open to educators in grades 3-12.
Educators will spend three days at the East Bay Center for Performing Arts working directly with professional artists to learn new skills and ideas for incorporating music, dance and theater into their curricula. They will learn best practices for integrating media-rich resources into their lesson plans, and will discover new resources for the classroom from KQED and PBS, including a new arts video series made specifically for a student audience. Educators will also receive instruction in integrating performing arts into CCSS curricula.
Artists will include Kwesi Anku and Kwaku Manu, members of the Bay Area's West African Music and Dance Ensemble (see video below). Educators will also work with musicians Achi Ben Shalom, Hassan El-Tayyab, and Karl Evangelista, as well as theater artist Norman Gee.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day. Teachers can elect to receive a $200 stipend for completing the institute, or 2 continuing education units through CSU East Bay.
Spaces are limited. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU WILL ATTEND all three days of the institute.
You only need to register once for all three days. If you are attending with a colleague, please ask them to complete registration on their own.
