Our emotional states shift as we move through events in our day. In this session you will not only learn a strategy to help students become aware of feelings and the events that shape them, but you’ll also learn how dance can become a tool to manage and express emotions.
Teachers will take self-guided sessions on teachable.com Sept. 28-Oct. 5 to prepare for the Zoom workshop on Oct. 6.
Kennedy Center Arts Integration
The Orpheum Theatre Group (OTG) is proud to be a Kennedy Center Partners in Education Team, in collaboration with Shelby County Schools. Through this program, OTG brings Kennedy Center teaching artists to work with teachers across the Mid-South. These arts integration specialists provide educators with the tools and strategies to transform classrooms.
Arts integration, as defined by the Kennedy Center, is “an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form.” Arts integration learning has shown to increase literacy, raise test scores, and help develop key communication skills. In short, arts integration makes learning fun while creating more enthusiastic, creative, and empathetic students.
