The Tanner Dance Program offers a series of six interactive professional development workshops. These workshops will all be held online this year via ZOOM. These workshops are designed to address arts integration and provide hands-on activities that educators can take back to the classroom to enliven and strengthen lesson plans. All workshops require participants to design curricula specific to their own teaching situations. All materials created in the workshop setting are usable in the classroom. Each workshop is 1.5 hours long. Participants will explore interdisciplinary models and create an individual lesson plan to implement in their classrooms with guidance and assistance from the workshop faculty. All lesson plans will be based on Utah State Core Curriculum. At the conclusion of the workshop series, participants will have a total of four lesson plans and corresponding teaching materials to use in his/her teaching. Participants will be required to submit a portfolio which includes lesson plans, written reflections, examples of student work, and photographs. The workshop series will be accompanied by mentoring and side-by-side in- school training delivered by key Tanner Dance faculty or other workshop faculty. Mentoring involves consultation with the classroom teacher prior to the mentor visiting the classroom. The mentor will then spend one hour observing the participant teaching his/her lesson plan where needed. You will only choose one Tuesday each month. We will repeat the same class the second Tuesday of each month.
