National Teaching Artist Video Library
As part of the Bartol Foundation’s work to support teaching artists, we established the National Teaching Artist Video Library, a national platform for teaching artists to share their knowledge. These one-minute tips are designed to be put to use in your classroom or community today. There are new tips every month to help with classroom management and activities for the classroom.
