in how to use the performing arts (music, drama, and movement) as a vehicle to teach the core content, i.e., science, engineering, math and literacy.
1) We streamline and simplify basic music techniques such as steady beat, pitch, and tempo so that the classroom teacher can master them quickly.
2) Next, we pair the music technique with a developmentally appropriate curriculum goal such as counting, addition, syllables, operations, methods, procedures, number values, etc.
3) We then design a workshop experience to guide the classroom teacher through a series of lessons that demonstrate how to present the curriculum and integrate the art form so that they work in tandem to meet their specific content goals and objectives.
4) So that teachers can leave the Winceyco workshop with confidence in their ability to implement these strategies in their classrooms, we institute the gradual release of responsibility. Our workshop structure not only allows teachers to view the arts techniques, but they also participate in leading activities via guided practice, and finally transition to independent application.
This workshop segment instructs teachers in how to create an experiential lesson in prepositional words.
"I can have fun in the classroom"
"I give this workshop an A++!"
