Webinar: Using the Arts to Re-Prime the Brain for Learning – July 30

Posted by Arts in the Other 23 on June 2, 2020

With arts programs being the first to be cut in public schools across the country due to the pandemic crisis, it is time for classroom teachers to rethink their teaching methodology post-pandemic. Additionally, we can anticipate an increased number of students demonstrating adversity or trauma related behaviors.

Arts-integrated learning can simultaneously re-prime the brain for learning, helping students re-adjust into the physical classroom setting successfully while providing tools to express and release feelings of anxiety and fear.

During this 2.5 hour workshop, teachers will learn about the benefits of arts-based learning and how to successfully implement new strategies and techniques into their current curricula.

Thursday, July 30th | 10:00am – 12:30pm

$25 per person…register online here: https://agrebe915.wixsite.com/artintheother23/resources

Presenters: Jenny Bopp is Dance Program Coordinator at Westtown School in West Chester. Amy Grebe is Director of Education at Girls First.

Their research and musings can be found on the blog, Arts in the Other 23, as well as in the academic publication, Healing Through the Arts for Non-Clinical Practitioners.
