IV. Lesson Planning and Improvisation
The purposeful integration of art and knowledge comes through lesson planning and improvisation.
Lesson planning is the conscious effort to envision the entirety of a workshop.
A lesson plan is firmly grounded when its goals are specific, measurable, accountable, repeatable, and bound by time.
Improvisation is the sign of mastery in a Teaching Artist.
Effective improvisation advances the goals of the lesson plan, and arises through observation and assessment.
