Because we believe that the arts are an essential component to a young person’s complete education, we offer a professional development series and workshops in the arts community to empower and embolden teaching artists. Our assumption is that if we can build the strength and capacity of our teaching artists, we will also increase the quality of their impact on students’ lives and education.
In this program, participants ranging in experience from emerging to established will dive deep into their teaching practice and examine the elements at the heart of their teaching: the what, the why, and the how. Identifying effective teaching strategies and assessment models through a combination of practice and observation will lead all participants to refine existing curriculum or to design and pilot new curriculum.
PLEASE NOTE that this professional development does not focus on finding work, marketing of your teaching work, or similar economic concerns; nor is it an application to be on the YA roster. RATHER, the TA Studio emphasizes building skills in lesson design, facilitation, assessment, and articulate collaboration with school partners.
