Summer Institute getting to core of education
The Mississippi Arts Commission’s Annual Whole Schools Initiative Summer Institute will offer educators new and innovative ideas for classroom arts integration. This year’s Institute will be held at the MSU Riley Center in Meridian, July 15 – 18 and will focus on “Getting to the Core of a 21st Century Education”.
Approximately 300 teachers, parents, artists, administrators and pre-service educators from more than 40 schools will gather in Meridian to learn about arts integration, a teaching strategy that allows students to create a deeper understanding of a subject while they are learning about an art form. The Institute’s highly professional training will give educators of all backgrounds the inspiration, knowledge and art skills to lead their students toward the goal of reaching full academic potential.
