I heard from William Crow, Metropolitan Museum of Art, that they are
doing another online workshop for elementary teachers.
They are looking for elementary school teachers from diverse
geographic areas who might be interested in participating in the
upcoming online teacher workshop, "Face to Face: Comparing Portraits"
that will begin on January 22 and conclude on March 1. The online
workshop the Met offered this past summer was an enormous success, and
so they are offering it again this winter. This interactive online
workshop will incorporate blogs, self-paced art making activities,
collaborative projects using wikis, and real-time synchronous webinars
so that elementary school teachers can become more familiar with
online resources produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore
portraits from the Museum's collections, and develop their own
strategies for integrating these works of art into their curricula.
The fee is a modest $40 which includes instruction, materials, and a
certificate for completing 15 contact hours of professional
development. (You will not send in any fee with your application. They
will notify you if you have been accepted).
