This week, KQED's Arts & Media education team descended upon the University of California's Arts, Media & Entertainment curriculum institute (UCCI), which "brings together educators from around the state to collaborate on the creation of model high school courses that anchor traditional academic learning in real-world experience."
We are working with teachers, observing their curriculum design sessions, and sharing resources and tools for integrating media-rich projects into their courses, which cover a range of topics including media production, theater, and writing.
We'll be sharing KQED's rich library of Arts Education resources, including our Theater Education Resources about playwrights and directors such as Carlos Baron, and Bay Area performance groups Theater of Yugen and headRush.
We'll also talk about free online media tools that engage and prepare our students for what lies ahead. Check out our presentation below.
