On Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 5PM to 8PM the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum will offer a teachers' workshop: Observe, Think, Write. The demands associated with improving test scores and standards have led to a trend for all classroom education to be language-aware; therefore many teachers are being challenged to present a rich writing and reading curriculum, regardless of their expertise. This Aldrich workshop will serve to inspire and inform classroom teachers by exploring methods and ideas that succeed in the cross-curricular classroom. Participants will focus on connecting thinking and writing with classroom goals by using art as a vehicle for deeper examination. Suzanne Enser-Ryan, the Museum's senior manager of school, teacher, and docent programs, will lead the workshop. Refreshments will be served.
