Opportunity for Rhode Island high school educators to participate in an arts integration professional development program. The three-session program will help teachers learn to integrate civic engagement related themes into any subject area through an artistic medium. Participants will develop classroom-based projects and share their students' work results in the closing professional development session.
There will be a total of three, full-day professional development sessions—two in the fall and one in the spring. Attendance is required at all three sessions and substitute funding will be available to schools. The October and November sessions will provide teachers with active arts integration experiences, and planning time to develop classroom-based projects that will be funded by RISCA. Participating teachers then carry out their classroom projects beginning in January, and share student work results in the May closing professional development session. Students are welcome to present at the May session.
