Using a variety of arts strategies, participants will practice embodied ways of engaging students and encouraging them to share their knowledge and perspectives with each other. This workshop will also help teachers find their own creative voices and learn how to capture learning results across all areas of the curriculum, including language arts, science, social studies, and math.
