Moving Through Science
Creative movement provides an opportunity to reach all learners, particularly the kinesthetic learner, in ways that allow them to process and retain information effectively and efficiently. In this workshop, teachers examine ways to enhance the teaching of science topics, such as the rainforest habitat, water cycle, rock cycle, plant life cycle, and states of matter, through movement. Participants explore how to involve students in active learning through warm-ups, improvisation, and simple structures for composing dances
BARS! Connecting to History through Hip Hop Songwriting
We can look to the great success of the musical Hamilton to know that the exciting world of Hip Hop songwriting can be a hook for engaging reluctant students. In this fresh and energizing workshop, learn to guide students in synthesizing information about a historical figure by writing lyrics for Hip Hop songs. Help your students connect with the rhythm of Hip Hop while deepening their understanding of history.
Course includes a Professional Development Certificate, printed materials, catered breakfast and lunch.
