Preventing the Preschool-to-Prison Pipeline with Arts Integration NEW!
In this interactive session, participants will reflect upon and discuss the causes for the preschool-to-prison pipeline and will analyze the role arts integration plays in the early childhood curriculum to counter the achievement gap among children of color. Trainers will discuss how arts can help promote social-emotional development and academic achievement for children living in poverty. Participants will:
- Examine and discuss related research about the preschool-to-prison pipeline;
- Analyze the role arts integration plays in helping to narrow the academic achievement gap and promote social-emotional development; and
- Obtain developmentally appropriate strategies to integrate the arts into the early childhood curriculum and to use in their classrooms immediately.
