Arts Integration Workshop: I See A Feeling—Examining SEL through Illustrations

Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 4:30 PM

Virtual Event


December 9, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 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 a virtual professional development workshop on arts integration for elementary and intermediate educators, and administrators on Thursday, December 9, 2021. The workshop is an asynchronous session, combined with Zoom as a platform, and led by Ms. Rick; thus allowing those registered to participate from any location using their own laptop or other device.

This workshop is most valuable for teachers of grades K-8.

Focus 5 and Kennedy Center teaching artist Melanie Rick will lead her workshop entitled, “I See a Feeling: Examining SEL through Illustrations,” for teachers serving students in grades K-8. Children’s literature is filled with characters who wrestle with various emotions while striving to overcome obstacles. The illustrations in these books often capture complex thoughts, feelings and actions and provide the catalyst for rich conversations and powerful lessons focused on social-emotional learning. During this session, participants learn how to look, think, and talk about detailed aspects of illustrations to help students make personal connections and gain a deeper understanding of their own feelings as well as others' feelings around them.
