Arts Integration & MI Theory with Christopher Eaves

Sunday March 6 (1-3pm)

A Deeper Dive aims to strengthen the Teaching Artist's articulation and application of Multiple Intelligences (MI) Theory as it relates to their own teaching artistry. We’ll look closely at how employing the Multiple Intelligences enhances arts integrated design and delivery—with strategies such as “Incidental vs. Intentional” and “Head or Heart.” Teaching Artists will have group discussion opportunities to compare efforts and share expertise. This professional development is designed to level-up the Teaching Artist’s practice.
