Arts Integration for Teachers
Partners in Education
The Bologna Performing Arts Center and Clarksdale Municipal School District are members of the Partners in Education program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Selected because of their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of education in and through the arts, the Partnership team participates in collaborative efforts to provide professional development opportunities in the arts for educators.
Partners in Education Workshops and Teaching Demonstrations
During the school-year, the Bologna Center and the Clarksdale Municipal School District collaborate to provide professional development workshops for educators. Each 3-hour workshop includes various methods and lessons that enhance the arts education curriculum in regular classroom subjects. State and national teaching artists lead each professional development workshop. Following the workshop, teachers are invited to observe the teaching artists as he/she performs teaching demonstrations with students based on the workshop objectives.
