Teacher Professional Development
|Great teachers are constantly educating themselves about ways to improve student learning. Our teacher programs are designed to engage K–Grade 12 teachers in experiences that expand their practice, ignite creativity, and foster lifelong learning. Hands-on workshops focus on ways to integrate the arts and world cultures into classroom curricula, sharpen teaching skills, and deepen knowledge of current social issues in order to create a community of learners with like-minded educators.|
Teaching Our World Through the Arts is a professional development program that prepares K–Grade 12 teachers to incorporate art and architecture, music, movement, theater, and film in their classrooms. To learn more, click here.
The Skirball offers workshops that help educators integrate current social issues into their curricula as well as develop and deepen knowledge of current teaching practices.
For 2013-2014, the Skirball is offering Teaching Through Storytelling: Noah’s Ark at the Skirball and Building STEAM: Intersections between Art, Math, and Science in Architecture. Learn more about these workshops here.
