Thousand Words Project with Bates College


When

Saturday, March 10, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Where

Olin Arts Center - Room 104

Featured in the 2011 MLTI Ubersession, the Bates College Museum of Art’s Thousand Words Project (TWP) is a vital resource for teachers interested in interdisciplinary approaches to teaching Common Core material and creating Mass Customized Learning options. TWP’s instructional framework motivates students by providing step-by-step skill-building exercises which enrich curriculums in Language Arts and other disciplines. Even initially doubting teachers who have worked with TWP agree that the project opened their eyes to new ways of seeing and teaching. This training workshop will guide you through the exercises. Time will also be given to our Call for Proposals for $500 grants to Androscoggin County teachers to develop new TWP units in all subjects.

Participants will need to bring a laptop (MLTI Device is great!).

A lunch buffet will be available at the nearby New Commons dining faciity for $8.75.
