    Teaching Through Storytelling

    Pre-K–Grade 12 teachers

    Teaching Through Storytelling introduces Pre-K through Grade 12 teachers to the Skirball’s online curricula and to arts-integration teaching techniques that foster students’ social and emotional competencies, critical thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration, and civic literacy skills. Participants learn and practice strategies that use the arts to enhance core content and make curricula more meaningful—strengthening classroom communities and engaging students as active citizens and community members. 

    The series is divided into four strands. Two strands will be held fully online, and two strands consist of two 90-minute virtual workshops on select weekdays and one in-person full-day Saturday training. A list of art supplies will be provided before each online workshop.

    Registration opens Wednesday, July 27, at 12:00 pm (PT)
