Arts Integration Workshop: Coming to America—Discovering History Through Poetry

Thursday, April 7, 2022 at 4:30 PM

Virtual Event


April 7 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Kennedy Center Partners in Education Mansfield Team, comprised of the Renaissance Performing Arts Association, the Mansfield Art Center, and Mansfield City Schools, will host Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, Mimi Herman for a "hands on online" professional development workshop for 3rd-12th grade level educators, and administrators on Thursday, April 7, 2022 from 4:30 PM until 7:30 PM. A zoom link will be sent out with registration confirmation.

Coming to America: Discovering History through Poetry

You arrive, with nothing but a trunk and a few members of your family, at Ellis Island, where you have to learn how to live in a whole new country without leaving your own culture behind. Through poetry, social studies and theatre arts, you will experience an engaging, hands-on approach to teaching history and English Language Arts through poetry and drama. As we immigrate we will integrate, weaving the arts seamlessly with your state standards to provide you with a deep understanding of the complex process of becoming an American.

This workshop is most valuable for teachers of grades 3-12.

About Our Teaching Artist

Mimi Herman transforms lives. She has taught over 25,000 teachers and students—many of whom would rather scrub a bathtub than write a poem—to fall in love with writing and integrate the arts across the curriculum. Mimi is a Kennedy Center Teaching Artist and director of the United Arts Council Arts Integration Institute.

Since 1990, Mimi has engaged students and teachers with arts integration residencies, as well as designing and providing professional development for teaching artists, teachers and administrators throughout the country. She has taught in the Masters of Education and EdD programs at Lesley University and has been an associate editor for Teaching Artist Journal.

Mimi holds a BA from UNC-CH and an MFA in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College. With her partner, John Yewell, she offers Writeaways writing workshops or writers in France, Italy and North Carolina. You can find her at www.mimiherman.com and www.writeaways.com.

Attending this workshop provides 3 contact hours towards CEU credit. For more information, email [email protected]

This event is free thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, Charles P. Hahn, CFP and the Ohio Arts Council.
