Summer Institutes

Summer Institutes

Each summer, elementary school teachers and teaching artists collaborate during a three-day intensive training and planning session. Participants explore artistic and educational resources, develop learning objectives, synthesize artistic and curricular elements for units of study, and determine the best approaches to assessing student learning as well as their own professional progress.


The collaborative approach used for these institutes requires every participant to understand how 21st Century Skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity (we call these The 4Cs) can be developed for adults and children alike.
