Learn to use the arts to:
- Connect to curricular areas
- Increase student engagement
- Manage Classrooms
- Deepen student comprehension
The Springfield Regional Arts Integration Conference brings together educators in southwest Missouri to learn about arts integration strategies for classroom implementation. Utilizing “Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts” teaching artists, you will learn more about the role arts integration can play in both arts and core classroom settings.
As defined by The Kennedy Center, arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding of one subject through the use of an art form. Through this creative process, students connect evolving objectives in each area of study.
The conference includes two days of amazing sessions covering topics such as:
"Scientific Thought in Motion"
"Drama as Classroom Management Strategies"
"Reading Arts across the Curriculum"
"Mathematics through Visual Arts"
"Curtain up on Collaboration"
This two-day conference includes light breakfast and lunch, informative break-out sessions, a t-shirt and more! Conference fee is $150, and free for Springfield Public School educators who register with a valid SPS email. Conference times are 8am to 4pm (approximately) both days.
Register for the conference today to reserve your spot! Registration closes on July 12, 2019*.
