Art Agenda

Welcome Participants from Barbara Sunday

Here is some additional information to help describe this institute. Student success through the demonstration of high-quality visual problem solving together with differentiated learning strategies will be key concerns throughout our four days. The following topics will be thoroughly covered: defining the parameters and examining the specifications for each of the three portfolio sections, striving for highest possible Quality results in both planning for instruction and mentoring individual students, and using the rubrics in conjunction with knowledge of the Reading process to maximize student results. Teaching strategies, sharing best practices, and examining suitable resources will be highlighted throughout the session.  Each day, time will be devoted to reviewing student work, examining contents of actual portfolios, and engaging in studio samplers that address specific instructional issues. I will provide a range of student examples as well as a practical handout. Bring questions, issues, and successes. Once registered, and close to our meeting time, I will send you a few specific details. Please feel free to ask me about this session at: 2165bsunday@gmail.com
