Periscope PD: Expanding Sentences Strategy
Who couldn’t use a new arts integration strategy to put in their bag of tricks?
Today’s Periscope PD is from the session I shared last Tuesday evening all about the Expanding Sentences strategy. In this short, 10 minute video, I explain how we take a common reading strategy and use it to help our students take their artistic work to the next level.
What’s great about this is that you can use it as a way to naturally bridge between the artistic skills and the content areas you try to integrate. Many times, this is where we falter: the transition zones. This strategy makes that transition smooth and carries you into your lesson with ease.
Plus, you don’t want to miss my pre-party Q&A about the new version of the Muppets that’s airing on ABC. Truly serious artistic talk going on, for sure.
As I explained in the broadcast, the real trick to pulling this all together is found in the transitions between the content and the arts area in the lesson. It’s really a delicate balance between the two.
