There’s so much to be excited about this week! I can’t wait to go to Chicago in a few days, and look forward reconnecting with old friends and making new connections with fellow art educators from around the country at the 2016 National Convention for the National Art Education Association.
This convention never fails to offer an nearly-overwhelming number of outstanding sessions for art educators of all types. There is no better place to be challenged to think deeply about the direction and future of our profession and how we can contribute to the success of that future.
I am honored to be presenting two sessions on Saturday, March 19. I hope to see some of you there!
Art Adaptations: Strategies and Scaffolds for Student Success
Saturday March 19 at 12:00 p.m.
Reduce frustration and increase access to content and skills in art class. Learn visual, verbal, and fine motor adaptations that support independence, comprehension, and participation of students with special needs.
Stop Grading Art
Saturday March 19 at 4:30 p.m.
Are you willing to think critically about what and how you grade? Examine common grading practices and consider changes that would better support student learning and align with contemporary artmaking.
