A special workshop held Tuesday afternoon to help teachers help their students learn. Local teachers were the students Tuesday afternoon in a workshop designed to help students express themselves through dance.

As a part of the Kennedy Center's "Partners in Education" program, renowned national teaching artist Randy Barron visited Mansfield to lead his "Poetry in Motion" workshop. This program is one of only two available in Ohio. It's a three way partnership between the Renaissance Theater, Mansfield city schools and Mansfield arts center.

Through instruction, conversation and movement, teachers learned how to help their students express their words. Programs like this are internationally recognized as a way to keep students interested, especially in areas where they may not normally participate. It helps with all skill-sets, from math to science and beyond.

The workshop was offered free of charge, and all teachers received three hours of continuing professional education for attending.
