Learning new methods,( and materials) is an essential part of teaching no
matter what subject you are trying to impart in your classes. But the
statistics are there that the Arts often are considered a fluff subject and
not part of the core curriculum, and that teachers who do not constantly
keep up with their field run the risk of teaching old material or just what
the curriculum states and not a second more than that.This board is a great
awy to keep up with a great deal of what is going on in the world of Arts

Thanks, Christine, I just read your message as I was about to justify my
attending the Mich. Art Ed. conference. Administration doesn't understand
that special teachers are isolated from their colleagues and that
conferences ...professional growth..are a necessity. We must "reflect on
our practices and interact with other professionals as well as explore new
resources, professional literature and advanced educational programs."
