Event Description

This program aims to enrich teachers’ understanding of how visual art can provide a unique approach to enhancing literacy skills and offer opportunities for higher-level critical thinking. Lectures, discussions, and workshops by university faculty, museum curators, and educators will demonstrate the use of how “visual text” levels the playing field for students of all reading and writing skill levels and can be used to enhance language arts achievement in the classroom.
The institute will draw upon a very successful school partnership that has been using the Center as an extended classroom and will demonstrate how this collaboration is aligned with both national and state standards in Language Arts, Social Studies, and the Visual Arts. By demonstrating how works of art in the Center’s collections can be used to enhance methods for teaching the construction and interpretation of narrative forms, the institute will give participants the tools they need to make museum visits effective.

Class will run from 10 am to 3:30 pm with a working lunch each day. Participants will assess the impact of the institute on their teaching and students’ responses in an after-school evaluation session that will take place in the spring of 2011. Each teacher will attend all four days in June/July, as well as the follow-up session in the spring of 2011. ceus are earned for full participation in the institute. The program is free of charge. Lunch and parking will be provided.
bonus! If you attend the institute with a colleague or two from the same school, we will provide you with a teacher resource packet for your classrooms consisting of: art cards, posters, a bac-Pack of gallery activities, and a dvd of images from the Center’s collection.

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

We Got Next: Playing Hoops and Transforming Lives

This weekend’s NBA All-Star Game is a reminder of the transformational power of basketball, and the many ways that LISC promotes a game that can spark opportunity and help heal communities all across the country.
