Professional Development Opportunity for Educators
Closing the Gap in Literacy and STEM Subjects with Arts Integration

This professional development session is offered FREE for all educators and parents of Pre-K through 8th grade students in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Onslow, Pender, and Sampson counties. Designed collaboratively by the Cameron Art Museum and the Southeast Center for Arts Integration to incorporate elements of both arts-integrated and hands-on learning experiences with Literacy. The workshop will use the exhibitions at the Cameron Art Museum as springboards to dive into the connections between visual literacy and reading and writing, and between the visual, literary, and theatre arts. Southeast Center for Arts Integration faculty, Sheila Kerrigan and September Kruger, will lead workshops.

This workshop is built on strategies that foster deep understanding by engaging the whole brain and offering opportunities for both concrete and abstract experiences. It will address multiple strands of North Carolina standards in Literacy for grades Pre-K-8 and are taught by educators who are highly experienced in providing experiential, collaborative learning experiences to both teachers and students.
