Side x Side Arts Institute
Side x Side Professional Development
Side x Side’s Arts Institute develops comprehensive professional development programs for elementary school teachers. Through continuous professional development opportunities, Side x Side empowers teachers and cultivates a meaningful understanding of the impact of arts integration and its application in the classroom.
Side x Side’s professional development programs are designed with both art and classroom teachers to include relevant pedagogy, content and standards. This collaboration demonstrates how well-designed arts projects can form the basis of an interdisciplinary instructional approach that incorporates contemporary learning standards into all academic subject areas.
Side x Side’s professional development strives to:
- Provide classroom teachers instruction in and exposure to various art forms applicable to their teaching and curriculum design in order to meet the needs of all students.
- Help redefine how students access, engage with, and demonstrate their knowledge of the curriculum.
- Support relationships that help foster sustainable community-based education practices through the placement of teaching artists and content experts in K-12 classrooms.
