As part of the Kennedy Center’s Partners in Education program, renowned national teaching artist Randy Barron will visit Mansfield on January 28th to lead his Poetry in Motion workshop.

During the workshop, teachers will learn methods to help students express their poems through dance with an integrated approach to language arts. Participants will explore a variety of movement techniques that extend students’ ranges of movement choices to express their words.

Additionally, teachers will examine ways to improve the quality of students’ dance interpretations by investigating a useful “drafting” and “editing” process.

The workshop is best suited to those teachers who teach students within the grade 4 through 12 range, but is also ideal for any teacher or administrator looking to become more familiar with arts integration as a teaching method. This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.

The Poetry in Motion workshop will be held at the Renaissance from 4:30 to 7:30 pm on Tuesday, Jan. 28. Dinner is included, and participants can receive three contact hours for professional development credit.

Any interested participant should register with Chelsie Thompson no later than Jan. 27 by contacting [email protected] or 419-522-2726, ext. 251.

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Charles Hahn of Lincoln Financial Group, this workshop is offered free of charge. As a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Mansfield-Kennedy partnership offers a wealth of resources to local teachers through access to a variety of local, state, and national teaching artists and resources.

A series of professional development workshops throughout the coming years will help teachers learn how to seamlessly integrate arts activities into lesson plans to not only help students be more engaged in school, but also retain information better and achieve their greatest learning potential.

The Mansfield partnership team is comprised of the Renaissance, Mansfield Art Center, and Mansfield City Schools. The team vied for a spot in the prestigious program against numerous other teams across the nation and was inducted into the program in May 2010 as one of just one hundred partnership sites across the country. The Mansfield Kennedy partnership program is made possible through a generous sponsorship by Charles P. Hahn of Cleveland Financial Group.
