Eradicating Microaggressions (SAE) in the Classroom

We desire for our students to thrive. Creativity thrives in an inclusive classroom that values the whole student and their many differences. When microaggressions, or subtle acts of exclusion (SAE), are present, many students feel disempowered and perform below their creative potential. This is costly for student growth and our nation at large. This hands-on engaging training aims to equip teachers, professors, and faculty to accomplish building a classroom of creativity and psychological safety.

Your educators will benefit by:

01.

Understand the levels of microaggressions (SAE) and their impact to student morale

02.

Equip educators with tools to address SAE as the initiator or bystander/ally position

03.

Increase self-awareness and empathy that builds allyship for an inclusive classroom

04.

Utilize scripts and communication guidelines for proper resolution of SAE offenses

Creative Arts Integration

To think creativity is only about the arts is wrong but to think one can reach their full creative potential without the arts is also incorrect. The creative arts (visual arts, dance, theatre and music) are integral parts of the human learning experience. Our training guides educators through effective methods for integrating the creative arts within an established curriculum for increased engagement and exploration of the content.

This training specializes in connecting the arts to metaphorical thinking, sensory observation, abstraction and more! Genein Letford has successfully lectured on arts integration at the university level and is pleased to bring her specialized program to educators across the nation. Let’s get our students moving, painting, playing, creating and learning thought the arts!

Your educators will benefit by:

01.

Learn the basic elements of the creative arts and how to communicate through those elements

02.

Integrating the creative arts in the curriculum for any grade and subject

03.

Acquiring strategies to expand their creative thinking and the creative thinking of their students with the creative arts
