Need To Know

ATA Board Member Russell Granet, who is a pioneer in the field of arts education and disability issues, hosts another installment in a series of useful webposiums for TAs. The first in the series, "Artists in Classrooms: The Role of the Teaching Artist", took place last year. It brought together TAs together from all over the world, and was sponsored, as is this one, by the DANA Foundation, leaders in the field of arts education research and funding.

Structured as a panel discussion, this latest webposium session will be streamed live, and viewers are invited to join in a Q and A at the end.

Not to be missed.

Details are below:

What do teaching artists need to know, understand, and be able to do to achieve success in a self-contained or inclusion classroom?

Join us for an online discussion about the challenges and successes of working with students with disabilities.

The panel consists of artists and educators dedicated to making the arts accessible to all students. The panelists will discuss practical classroom strategies, lesson plan modifications, as well as the necessary questions to ask in order for everyone (artists, students, teachers, para-professionals, and administrators) to be successful.

Panelists include:


Russell Granet, Founder, Arts Education Resource
