A teacher workshop scheduled for July 27-28 will allow attendees to investigate the pedagogical benefits of effective arts include across content areas while addressing deeper learning opportunities, fostering curiosity and exploring ways for increasing student engagement.
“The Colors of Nature: Investigating the Interactions of Science and Art” will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27-28 at the McPherson Opera House, 219 S. Main, in McPherson.
The workshop is funded by The Norene Ketcherside Endowment for Fine Arts.
While the workshop is designed for K-8 classroom teachers, participation is best experienced in partnership with another content teacher, such as art or science. Through a series of investigations, participants will become familiar with the core practices of science, math and art to develop scientific and artistic habits of mind that empower engagement in self-directed inquiry.
Registrations received by July 22 will be eligible for a classroom grant up to $150 from the Norene Ketcherside Endowment Fund for Fine Arts. The grant may be used to purchase classroom supplies during the 2023-2024 school year. To learn more, contact Becky Goss at 620-245-9070 or 620-242-7169 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The registration is capped at 40 participants. Register here.
