Tell Your Instructional Story: Recognizing and Naming Your Great Teaching (25)
Limit 25
Have you ever struggled to explain your differentiation or assessment strategies to a colleague or administrator? I have!  Our creative instruction comes naturally to us as artists, and it can be hard to name the decisions and moves we’re making within our teaching practices. In this workshop, attendees will unpack the inherent instructional moves we make as Visual Arts teachers, collaborate, and explore ways to tell their instructional stories to others outside of art education. Come ready to discuss, reflect, share, and learn!
