JOURNEY Cultural Arts Workshops for Teachers-Looking Carefully, Reading Closely with Hofstra University Museum
October 19, 2016 @ 4:30 am - 7:30 pm
Nancy Richner, Museum Education Director of the Hofstra University Museum, will engage participants in an inquiry-based discussion and hands-on workshop exploring the use of art and artifacts in teaching classroom subject areas. We will examine how works of art “provide evidence” and can be used as text to help develop 21st century skills; strengthen literacy, observational and interpretive skills and engage students in interdisciplinary thinking about the world around them. For teachers of all disciplines but especially gen-Ed classroom, library science, K-8, ELA, social studies, arts and special Ed teachers.
Teachers from the following districts attend for free: Cold Spring Harbor CSD, Commack UFSD, Harborfields CSD, Huntington UFSD, Northport/East Northport UFSD, Plainview/Old Bethpage CSD, and South Huntington UFSD
