Getting Ready (15 minutes)

What makes teaching both an art and a science? What do good teachers in all disciplines know and do that has sustained, substantial, positive influence on students?

As you begin this series of eight workshop sessions, reflect on your current teaching practices. Make notes in your journal and then discuss and compare how you:

  • Develop students as artists
  • Address the diverse needs of students
  • Choose instructional approaches
  • Create rich learning environments
  • Foster genuine communication
  • Make the most of community resources
  • Nurture independent thinkers

Keep your initial journal entries to compare with your developing ideas about artful teaching practice.
