PLYMOUTH — PreK-12 classroom teachers, music educators, SPED teachers, early-childhood providers and family members are invited to participate in a special summer institute that will explore the ways in which arts-based teaching in general — and music in particular — can help educators and parents meet the needs of all learners.
The institute takes place Monday, August 12 through Wednesday, August 14. (Hours are 1 to 6 p.m. Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.)
Participants will learn and discuss a wide variety of traditional songs, chants, and singing games, and build simple homemade musical instruments from natural or recycled materials. They will leave with a wealth of new ideas and materials for working with students of all ages.
The institute takes place in Lamson Library, Room 124 on the Plymouth State campus. Cost of the 18-hour institute is $125 for CEUs (includes lunches and snacks), $100 for Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire members. Partial scholarships are available; everyone interested is welcome to attend. Cost for graduate credits is $175/credit, plus $25 for food.
Preregistration is required. Those interested can register online at www.aannh.org.
