Enhancing Your Curriculum through Art
Presented by: Nica Lalli
Presenter Nica Lalli helps educators discover routes to dedicated art instruction-through Internet research, image study and museum trips-to help students enhance their skills at observation, interpretation and implementation for all curriculum subjects. In this course, teachers will discover how to use art to introduce a broader field of inquiry from studying diverse cultures and points-of-view to creative writing projects and even match curriclula. The course features classroom footage of Lalli asking critical questions of the art object’s origins and meaning, modeling the rewarding tasks of looking at art with students and engaging with them in hands-on projects that reinforce lessons.
