Get Creative: City-wide PD day at Materials for the Arts

Join us June 9, 2011 for “Artistic Reuse to the (Common) Core” a PD workshop for the Chancellor’s Conference Day for staff development. Participants will learn lots of free or low-cost art projects that get students involved in learning. The June 9 workshop is particularly focused on integrating art-making and the Common Core standards.

This game (above) was conceived during an MFTA workshop:

This is a game about the body and how it functions using the subway map to represent viens/artieries etc.  The cards around the board have questions that students roll dice and land on to answer-each student get a blank image of a body-as they answer questions correctly they add in the body parts-whoever fills up the body first is the winner!!

Artistic Reuse to the (Common) Core,” 9:30 am – 3:30 pm, June 9, 2011, a PD workshop for the Chancellor’s Conference Day meets at Materials for the Arts. For more information or to sign up, click here or call 718-729-2165.
