Summer Teachers' Institute 2018: "Windows into Other Times and Places: Explore a World of Art and Performance"

Tue, June 12, 2018 | UT Campus - TBD

June 12 - 15, 2018 (four-day workshop)
UT Austin campus

In a continuation of last summer’s focus on interdisciplinary education (STEM and Social Studies in 2017), we turn this summer to examining the links between social studies and art education. Social studies offers knowledge of human experiences, while art has the power to animate intimate understandings of human experiences.  Art, as a way of knowing, presents a comprehension that the facts and abstractions of social studies cannot always reveal.  The Institute speakers and activities will address general teaching requirements that encourage the use of rich primary and secondary source material, such as songs and artworks. The Institute speakers and activities will address general teaching requirements that encourage the use of rich primary and secondary source material, such as songs and artworks.  The Institute will focus on other standards under the “culture” themes, to examine the relationship that exists between the works of art and the societies in which they are produced; and how artistic expressions also transcend boundaries and convey universal themes.
 
This year Hemispheres is partnering with the School and Teacher Programs at the Blanton Museum of Art where a number of training activities will take place on the first day of the institute.  Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a guided tour of the Harry Ransom Centers Vaudeville! exhibition.
