These tips are presented by the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation, which supports arts education and community arts based programming in Philadelphia.
Teaching artist Dave Ruch has been live-streaming many of his presentations directly into school classrooms – from his house. His resource article “How to Perform for 27,000 Kids (from your basement) details exactly how he does it, and how you can do it too.
Bartol Foundation launches National Teaching Artist Video Library
Imagine this: You are waiting for the bus on the way to teaching a residency, wracking your brain for a new icebreaker or wondering what exactly is that “common core” that everyone keeps talking about. The answers are a minute away (which is much quicker than a Philly bus these days!).
As part of the Bartol Foundation’s work to support teaching artists, we are creating the National Teaching Artist Video Library of one-minute teaching artist tips, a crowd-sourced resource by teaching artists for teaching artists. Our videos include:
- “How-to” videos: One-minute tips you can use in your classroom now
- “What is…” videos: A glossary of common phrases in education, child development, and other areas that teaching artists should know
This month’s videos:
- Answer the Unasked Question: How to avoid classroom disruption before it starts
- Opening and Closing Rituals: How to create the right environment before and after your class
Watch one now!
NOW WE NEED YOU! There are more videos to come but we need yours. Do you have quick, helpful gems for your fellow teaching artists? What is your best teaching artist tip?
