Staff DevelopmentThis is a workshop sponsored by the Amon Cartoer Museum of American Art. The workshop will feature Dr. James L. Thomas, nternational consultant on early literacy skills, to explore what early literacy means and can look like in your classroom or center! During this interactive workshop, participants will learn about the six early reading skills, how they relate to brain development, and basic ways to integrate them into daily classroom curriculum, including practicing ways to read picture books that dramatically increase language development and applying the dialogic reading method when sharing a picture book. Amon Carter educators will demonstrate how to use artworks to support early reading skills and facilitate art projects that reinforce Pre-K students’ cognitive, physical, and social skills. Pre-K teachers from classroom, day care, and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register. Learn how to use art to make cross-curricular connections at our professional development programs for educators. CPE credits, digital images, and classroom activities tied to state and national teaching standards are provided at each workshop. All workshops are free unless otherwise noted. Space is limited, and preregistration is required. Cancellations must be received forty-eight hours in advance of the program or a $25 fee will be charged; program materials will be mailed to absent teachers.
