Art and the Common Core: Professional development course for teachers

This is one of many bookmaking techniques teachers learn during "Paper: From Pulp to Fiction"

Paper: From Pulp to Fiction, a “P” credit course for teachers, starts Saturday, April 21!

Learn how items from the recycling bin and free supplies from Materials for the Arts can be creatively reused for engaging lessons in all content areas. During this multi-session course, teachers focus on developing hands-on, Common Core-aligned lesson plans for their students. Participants learn to creatively reuse a variety of (often free) supplies for papermaking, pen and ink, block prints, silkscreen, and collage.

Paper: From Pulp to Fiction meets from 9:30 am – 5:00 pm for six Saturday sessions at MFTA: 4/21/12, 4/28/12, 5/5/12, 5/12/12, 5/19/12, and 5/26/12

Upon successful completion of this course, DOE staff earn three “P” In-service credits, for professional certification and salary differential requirements (+30), from NYCDOE After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP).

Total cost $425 (MFTA fee, $300 + ASPDP fee, $125)
