TEACHING AND LEARNING IN THE ARTS

Arts Classroom Demonstration Sites Arts Teachers

Essential Question What can arts educators learn by observing and analyzing high-quality arts teaching and learning in real time? Seeing exemplary arts teaching and learning in action — and having the opportunity to discuss it in detail with other teachers — is an invaluable way to discover new techniques and approaches, connect with colleagues, and renew your passion for teaching. At these sessions, Arts Instruction Specialists open their classrooms for other CPS educators to observe them as they lead high-quality, standards-based lessons in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, and media arts. A one-hour debrief after observation allows attendees to analyze the teaching and learning they just saw, ask questions of the host and students, and explore how to transfer and adapt techniques and tools for their own classrooms. The CPS Department of Arts Education funds substitute teachers for all attendees of Demonstration Sites.

Session Objectives Participants will: ∞ Actively observe exemplary arts lessons in order to grow their understanding of high-quality, standards-based instruction, curriculum, and assessment ∞ Use discussion protocols to analyze observed lessons for alignment to best practices ∞ Engage in action planning to bring tools and techniques back to their classrooms
