Webinar
Art and the Common Core

Friday, February 21, 2014, 12:00 - 1:15 p.m. (feel free to bring your lunch)
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Co-sponsored by the All-College Teacher Education Committee (ACTEC) and the Center for Faculty Excellence
Hosted by Susan Avery, Associate Professor, Department of Music Education
As educators work to help students meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards in English/language arts and mathematics, many arts education advocates are making the case that the arts can be a valuable partner. For example, some teachers are seizing on works of art as “text” to be the subject of a close reading, much like a novel or essay, as called for in the new English standards. This webinar features two experts who discuss the potential of arts integration with the common core and provide practical examples of how to put the concept into practice.

There's a Game for That! Teaching with the Reacting to the Past Pedagogy
Monday, February 24, 2014, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Presented by Keri Watson, Assistant Professor, Department of Art History
The Reacting to the Past (RTTP) pedagogy, which was developed at Barnard College in the late 1990s, consists of elaborate games, in which students are assigned roles informed by primary texts. The games draw students into the past, promote engagement with big ideas, and improve intellectual and academic skills. The RTTP curriculum, which presently includes over 65 games in numerous disciplines, has been implemented by faculty at hundreds of colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad since 2001. These games, which are typically played over several weeks, were designed for use in freshman seminars, but can be adapted to any number of situations including theme-designated courses in IC's Integrated Core Curriculum. Please join Asst. Professor of Art History Keri Watson as she shares information on the pedagogy, the possibilities for its implementation at IC, and her own experiences of teaching "Modernism vs. Traditionalism: Art in Paris, 1888-89."
