TAT Lab Curriculum
TAT Lab curriculum is informed by four key questions:
What unique qualities do teaching artists bring to a classroom?
What are “reflective practice” and “thoughtful planning” and why are they important?
How can we teach arts skills along with higher order thinking skills and habits of mind?
How do we create safe, inclusive and effective learning environments for all students?
With these questions in mind, the TAT Lab will address both philosophical and nuts-and-bolts aspects of teaching artist practice, with a focus on instructional design: developing and articulating clear arts learning objectives and assessment strategies.
