Workshop for Artists/Educators in Special Needs Schools
Discover the power the performing arts have to ignite children’s sense of wonder and discovery of their world. Children acquire knowledge through exploring, experimenting and using all of their senses to make connections between learning concepts and application. The use of the performing arts as a teaching tool accommodates individual learning styles and multiple intelligences, encourages active participation and creates motivation and enthusiasm for learning.
The infusion of arts-based techniques into daily routines provides powerful teaching strategies that participants can use to enhance all areas of comprehensive, holistic, and inclusive curricula: emergent literacy, self-esteem, socialization, problem solving, receptive and expressive language, motor skills, self-regulation, science, numeracy, and conceptualization. In this session participants will learn arts-integrated strategies and adaptations successfully used in classrooms to support children of varying learning abilities and special needs.
This workshop is led by Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning through the Arts (USA) and supported by the National Arts Council. For more information on Wolf Trap, visit http://www.wolftrap.org/education/
