The following Professional Development Options reflect nearly 25 years of teacher tested theory into practice for teaching and learning in, about and through the arts in the Connecticut Office of the Arts’ prestigious Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Schools Program. They are fitting to advance learning through differentiated and inquiry–based instruction, multiple intelligence theory and higher order thinking through the arts processes of creating, performing, responding and connecting for any educational setting. Each opportunity is designed as hands-on, experiential learning for educators of all types – arts and non-arts classroom teachers, teaching artists, principals, curriculum directors, arts organization educators, etc. Each inspires collaborative practice in a professional learning community and provides educators innovative actionable strategies to awaken joyful engagement in the K-12 classroom.
