Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB)

Teaching All Students

Summer 2017 Institute at MassArt: July 9-14, 2017

Spend a week in historic Boston with TAB educators to develop and expand understandings about choice-based pedagogy in PreK-12 art programs.

Teaching All Students, this summer's focus, looks at culturally proficient teaching, special education, and English language learners in the PreK-12 TAB classroom.

Teachers new to TAB will acquire plans, tools, and strategies to implement a choice-based art curriculum in their own setting. Teachers with experience in choice-based art education will deepen understandings of learner-directed practice.

  • Introductory workshops for teachers new to TAB
  • Guest speakers
  • Break-out sessions on topics proposed by attendees
  • On-line pre-work component
