Teaching with Big Ideas

Sat, Apr 22, 2023 10:00 - 01:00 PM MDT

Category: Workshops + Activities,

Using big ideas to guide our instruction can help students find relevance, encourage critical thinking, and connect us to our shared humanity. Join us for this interactive teacher workshop where we’ll explore some of the big ideas that underpin Clyfford Still’s work and uncover ways to use them in our teaching practice. We’ll participate in gallery-based activities led by CSM educators and then develop big ideas related to our content areas. Time will be provided to plan and get feedback on a workshop for your students that centers big ideas.

“First I thought art was pretentious, only for experts and critics. Now I think expression is a helpful tool to get students to think in meaningful and creative ways.”
