Integrated Learning Habits of Mind
Integrated Learning Habits of Mind


Join us on Wednesday, October 25 from 4-6pm for a professional development workshop focusing on the Integrated Learning Habits of Mind.

Led by Julia Marshall, a key influencer in development of the Integrated Arts curricula for Alameda County Office of Education Integrated Learning Program, this workshop explores the skills and dispositions that underlie inquiry-based, arts-integrated learning. These habits embrace the social, cultural, and emotional aspects -- as well as the academic and cognitive benefits -- of this approach to education. Ideas and strategies for teaching will be provided through engaging hands-on art activities.

The workshop is just $15 and is great for educators at any level and anybody interested in the field. Click below to register, or call our Box Office at 408-961-5858, Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm.
