Enriching the World Language Curriculum with the Arts

Session 1
Melanie Manuel, Shawn Merrill, Melissa Whitaker, Shay Kretowicz, Karen Aquino, Erica Saldivar Garcia

How can we impact student achievement in a World Language classroom by providing a curriculum rich in the arts? World Language teachers often struggle with how to engage students, particularly with regards to speaking and writing. In this session, we will demonstrate multiple activities that use the arts as a vehicle for generating ideas, enthusiasm and creativity.

A new leadership school

Session 6
Joshua Spodek

Society could use more effective leadership, but what institutions teach it? We know how to teach it, but almost no institutions focus on leadership first. If you'd like to see a school teach the skills for leadership (probably post-graduate) or have experience starting schools or teaching leadership, please join.
