Learn Art Smarts for Teachers
(Register for ASD's professional development course.)
This one credit course is a must see for all teachers. It seems everyone agrees that the arts make everyone smarter, but how exactly do we go about bringing them into our class without being a specialist? This class will show you how.
Contact Jen Terry for course times and other info.

Connect with Other Educators
(Find integrated lesson ideas.)
Consider taking the Professional Development Course: "PLC's for Arts Specialists and Arts Integrators," where you will have a chance to work, PLC style, with other educators who share your same interests and objectives. Best of all, besides the required orientation meeting and and the closing celebration, you can schedule the rest of the meetings when it works best for you and your cohort.
