"Binational Health Week is one of the largest mobilization efforts in the Americas, encompassing an annual weeklong series of health promotion and health education activities and services. It involves a collaboration of government agencies, private and community-based organizations, sharing resources and services to improve the health and well-being of the underserved Latino population living in the United States and Canada.  In Santa Clara County alone, thousands participate and benefit from health activities conducted by dozens of County agencies, community-based organizations, and hundreds of volunteers.  For more information, please visit the Santa Clara County Public Health Department website at: http://bit.ly/17SjvwU."

Arts In Your Classroom 2017: Art as Activism: Deconstructing Education to Build a Better Future (March 4th, 2017, 9-4pm) // Montalvo Arts Center

Arts In Your Classroom 2017: Art as Activism: Deconstructing Education to Build a Better Future (March 4th, 2017, 9-4pm) // Montalvo Arts Center | Community Connections: Santa Clara County Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Don't miss Montalvo’s 15th annual Arts In Your Classroom conference! This year’s theme is "Arts as Activism: Deconstructing Education to Build a Better Future," examining de-constructivism and constructivist theories, community trauma, and humanizing education.

**A morning and afternoon session are offered for each workshop. You will be asked to register for one AM workshop and one PM workshop. **

Workshop 1: I Wish My Teacher Taught This Way

  • How is the way our curriculum is structured engaging or disengaging students? In this workshop, students from Berkeley High School talk frankly about their experience in the classroom, and how they wish teachers would teach. They will discuss the importance of community building, metacognition, peer-to-peer teaching, and the benefits of involving students in the design of the curriculum. They will also explain how understanding constructivism facilitates learning, and how various grading and assessment structures impact students. Kimberley D’Adamo Green will provide a teacher’s perspective on how changing her own curriculum design and delivery made teaching easier while more authentically engaging her students.

  • Artist: Kimberley D’Adamo Green
  • Discipline: Visual with pedagogies around constructivism, curriculum critique, metacognition, and assessment

Workshop 2: Adapting History: Hip-Hop, a Collective Narrative 

  • For over a decade, Dahlak Brathwaite has observed the elements within the mediums of hip-hop and spoken word that can be used for community building and social engagement, and how they can elicit the “art” of creating meaningful connections and inspiring lasting civic engagement. This workshop will explore the similarities between this performance style and traditional teaching methods in hopes of discovering what makes education, like activism, an enlightening but personal experience—what engages the disengaged, and how is passion transferred? Educators will leave the workshop with tools for communicating the material they are most passionate about, creating the groundwork for activating student learning for use beyond the classroom, beyond the job market, and into social practices.

  • Artist: Dahlak Brathwaite
  • Discipline: Hip Hop/Spoken Word

Workshop 3: Art is Power: Engaging Community Through Creative Practice 

  • As the saying goes, “United we stand. Divided we fall.” In this workshop, Art is Power’s Executive Director Patrice Milillo will guide teachers in developing innovative programs that cultivate community and bring people together to activate their space. The idea is to bring the community into the classroom and the classroom out into the community. Teachers will leave with a template to replicate programs that pair Common Core State Standards with community activism through the arts.

  • Artist: Patrice Milillo
  • Discipline: Multidisciplinary

Workshop 4: Meaningful Movement: Social Emotional Learning and Dance as Activism

  • Dance, by its very nature, is active. Dance engages a person wholly—socially, emotionally, cognitively, and viscerally—while conveying powerful messages without the need of words. In this workshop, explore dance as communication and activism, as well as how it furthers social and emotional learning. Participants will develop and perform “movement messages” using images and words from greeting cards as inspiration, as well as work in small groups to create “movement messages of change” for their community.  While engaging both mind and body in fun, unexpected ways, participants will explore connections between movement and meaning, and learn ways to read body language (such as gestures and posture).

  • Artist: Laurel Shastri
  • Discipline: Dance/Creative Movement. 

Workshop 5: Activism Through Poster-Making: Water Ecosystems and Pollution Awareness

  • How do my actions impact the quality of the water where I live? What about the health of the wildlife? In this workshop, participants will answer these questions with the help of the design thinking process, basic graphic design, and other technology, creating a poster that articulates ways to protect our water ecosystems. Learn more about these ecosystems and pollution problems, looking specifically at our watershed, then develop an idea into a poster and incorporate the Pic Collage app to make revisions. This workshop can be tailored for grades 2-9. Lesson plans for this unit will be provided.

    IMPORTANT: Tablets will not be provided, so please bring your own (iPads or others), or use your smart phone. Please download the app Pic Collage prior to the workshop.    

  • Artist: Michele Guieu 
  • Discipline: Visual Art and Technology
