Together, We Make Music.... and History and Math and....
Limited Capacity seats available

Ever taught a unit that you knew had one foot in your content area and another foot in someone else's? Or have you ever just wanted to come up with a really great way to spice up a lesson that needs something extra? Bring a lesson you would love to co-teach with another content area. Teaching across content areas provides additional connections and relevance for students and can make learning more fun both for students and their teachers. We'll explore ways to work together both face to face and digitally.

Music Reading & Student Success
Limited Capacity seats available

This course will provide information on what is involved in reading and performing music. Examples will be given of what is expected of students when they are reading a music score. Also, deep breathing will be practiced and discussed, i.e. how does the thoracic diaphragm pertain to singing or playing an instrument. Participants will have the opportunity to learn chord structures, time and key signatures, and see the steps students go through as they advance in music literacy. See how the study of music relates to math and science and how this connection could be used in the classroom.
