Description: 

In this two-part interactive workshop, participants will reflect upon and discuss the causes of the preschool-to-prison pipeline and will analyze the role arts integration can play in the early childhood curriculum to counter the achievement gap among children of color. Dr. Bwekia Steen, professor of Early Childhood at George Mason University, joins Inner City-Inner Child to discuss how arts can help promote social-emotional and academic achievement for children of poverty. Participants will gain developmentally appropriate strategies they will be able to use immediately in their classroom.

The learning objectives are: 1) participants will examine and discuss related research about the preschool-to-prison pipeline; 2) participants will analyze the role arts integration plays in helping to narrow the academic achievement gap and promote social and emotional development; and 3) participants will obtain relevant strategies about ways to integrate the arts into the early childhood curriculum.

  • Early childhood - early (birth-36 months)
