Webinar Registration:

Description: This webinar will offer practical approaches and strategies for dealing with the many situations which present themselves to teaching artists (TAs) working in schools, in out-of-school settings, and in studio and community arts programs and workshops. It will stress problem-solving techniques, ways to make the most of good communication with other teachers, staff, and students themselves, and real-life examples of ways to work through common and uncommon challenges with a variety of learners, including those with disabilities and with behavioral issues. It will also touch on TA-teacher collaboration and how it helps meet these needs.

Intended Audience: Teaching Artists, teachers who have TAs in their classes, paraprofessionals, school specialists (OT, PT, Speech and Language, etc.), specials teachers (Art, Music, Dance, Theater), community art program organizers, administrators interested in arts programming in their schools or organizations.

This seminar is hosted by the Kennedy Centre

In recent years the Kennedy Center has dramatically expanded its education programs to reach young people, teachers, and families throughout the nation. A clear sign of the Center’s commitment to the arts for young people and families is the Family Theater, which opened in 2005.

The education programs of the Kennedy Center have become models for communities across the country and have unlocked the door to learning for millions of young people.

    Btw, I wanted to mention that your puzzles are really cool. Not only are they cool, but they can improve brain fitness, such as exercising the occipital lobes which contain the primary visual cortex. Jo, as I mentioned before, you are way ahead of the curve. Very beneficial work you are doing and sharing.

      Hi V, I would like to contact you by email? I have looked everywhere for an address and cannot find one. (It might be set to private?) I am about to set up PHD research and wanted to ask you something. I have read your last post – but not deeply enough to comment. There os so much to think about in your work that I might just think it over for a while. Could you drop me a lie on (If you want to?) Jo
