Classroom Management  - Creating a Learning Environment
"When did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first you have to make them feel worse."

- Jane Nelsen

For Teaching Artists
2 hours of instruction time
Maximum number of workshop participants: 30

How do we learn about the world?  How do we express who we are?  The arts, by their very nature, present an opportunity to engage the imagination of students and can create a learning environment where students connect all of their talents and skills in a successful manner.

This workshop designed specifically for Teaching Artists introduces concepts and practices for creating an environment conducive to learning.   Based on classroom management strategies and practical application, the workshop asks participants to integrate concepts presented into arts activities and then reflect on them.

"It is a fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little planet, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail."
