Workshop: Deepening Inquiry in the Arts Classroom

Deadline February 07, 2020

A Teaching Artist Studio Workshop

Doors at 11:00am. Workshop starts promptly at 11:30pm, and ends at 4:30pm

How can teaching artists help students own their learning? What kinds of questions lead to rich observations and ideas, and strengthen metacognitive skills? How can we use questioning to help students best encounter and discuss works from masters and from fellow students?

In this workshop, we will use artworks at the museum to explore ways to structure open questions that build student engagement, provoke meaningful inquiry, and assess for understanding. Participants will learn questioning strategies and will have an opportunity to put them into practice in live time with other teaching artists.

Led by Tony Fuemmeler with Briana Linden

Limit 24 participants.
