Tools for Performance Assessment and Techniques to Create a Multi-Media Presentation using Stop Animations, Time Lapse and Slo MO 2). Music- Literacy in Music 3) ELA-Writer’s Workshop and Advanced Bookmaking Techniques; 4). Game Boards; 5).Group project based work; 6). Group Presentations and Peer Assessment. This course provides both independent and group study. Each morning, participants work individually on project based learning techniques highlighting a specific curriculum topic by making hands-on art projects. There will be guided instruction for art making, writing prompts, journaling, and individual and peer assessment, linking each art workshop to literacy, modeling how to infuse multiple subject matters into your daily curriculum. Each afternoon participants will utilize their prior knowledge, journaling, research and the sharing of best practices to work in groups, to create a multi-media presentation/final project, designed for a wide scope of learners, for various subject areas, learning styles and ability levels relevant to their own instructional setting. Emphasis will be placed on creating sustainable artwork: that which leaves no negative impact on the environment. Participants will receive a course pack of documents outlining vocabulary and how-to instructions for the techniques learned.
