Teaching Reading and Language Arts to Older Students and Struggling Readers
Profs. Rhianna Casesa and MaryAnn Nickel
Student teachers refined and extended their knowledge of arts teaching/learning processes by visiting the University Art Gallery’s “Cries & Whispers” exhibition, featuring work by John Yoyogi Fortes and Cate White relating to the “outsider art” movement. Arts Integration worked with the Gallery to create a short guided video tour of the exhibition to prepare EDMS 463 students for viewing it in person. .

Education: Multiple Subject 411: Teaching Second Language Learners
Using a module from the Arts Integration FLC, Prof. Forasiepi led 12 students working in Ives 80 dance studio through movement and sketching exercises in response to the song “The Last Midnight” from Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine, which performed at SSU in Spring 2016. Students used the musicals themes of disasters and miracles in everyday life to model moment-to-moment classroom strategies for their own field, teaching English to second language learners.
“Learning art techniques... inspired me to use them in my own course and adapt them for my learning goals.” – Prof. Cinzia Forasiepi
