The demands associated with improving test scores and standards have led to a trend for all classroom education to be language-aware; therefore teachers are being challenged to present a rich writing and reading curriculum, regardless of their expertise.

Observe, Think, Write, a free workshop to be held at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum from 5 to 8 pm on Thursday, January 31, will serve to inspire and inform classroom teachers by exploring methods and ideas that succeed in the cross-curricular classroom. Participants will focus on connecting thinking and writing with classroom goals by using art as a vehicle for deeper examination.

Suzanne Enser-Ryan, the Museum’s senior manager of school, teacher, and docent programs, will lead the workshop. Refreshments will be served. .3 CEUs are available.
