The Art of Teaching the Arts: A Workshop for High School Teachers
Annenberg Media
"The Art of Teaching the Arts: A Workshop for High School Teachers" is an eight-part professional development workshop for use by high school dance, music, theatre, and visual art teachers. The workshop examines how principles of good teaching are carried out in teaching the arts at the high school level. In the eight one-hour video programs, seven principles of effective teaching are introduced, then explored in depth. Teachers from arts magnet high schools and comprehensive high schools across the country are shown demonstrating their practice and discussing their goals, methods, and experiences. An interactive Web site and a print guide support and augment the video programs. The Web site includes activities for workshop sessions that encourage participants to draw on their own experiences; background on the schools and teachers featured in the video programs; and interactive features that provide perspective on the teaching principles. This DVD contains these eight workshop programs: (1) Principles of Artful Teaching; (2) Developing Students as Artists; (3) Addressing the Diverse Needs of Students; (4) Choosing Instructional Approaches; (5) Creating Rich Learning Environments; (6) Fostering Genuine Communication; (7) Making the Most of Community Resources; and (8) Nurturing Independent Thinkers. [This workshop was produced by Lavine Production Group, Inc., in collaboration with EDC's Center for Children and Technology and the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts.]
