Resource of the Week

Resource of the Week for Teachers is a collaboration between teachers-in-residence Sue Pezanoski Browne and Katie Hobday, and Lynden’s education implementor Anna Grosch.

As Lynden’s art-educators-in-residence, we have begun dialoguing with each other and our colleagues about how to continue teaching practices and stay connected with students during this time of social distancing.  Every Friday morning, we will be posting a “Resource of the Week” with the goal of providing mutual support between art educators. We aspire for this to be a collaborative space for all who teach art in the Milwaukee Area.

There will be periodic surveys to get these conversations started, and an interactive format to keep them going (if you would like to participate in these surveys, email Anna Grosch).

Please join us in creating a unique space that is for art educators by art educators.

May 1: Creating Balance As an Art Educator
This week we look at the results of the Creating Balance as an Art Educator survey. While we found many common perspectives amongst the responses to our survey, it is clear that what balance means for each of us is shaped by a variety of factors including but not limited to: health concerns, family needs, and personality differences, along with the level of professional support we are feeling as teachers working remotely.

May 8: Celebrating Small Successes
As we begin to approach the final weeks of the school year, it is helpful to reflect on small moments that kept you motivated and made you smile. Whether it is a piece of artwork from a student, a small interaction with a parent, or the mutual support felt between you and your coworkers, these moments are what help us continue to inspire and educate our students. We have posted a survey on the topic of Celebrating Small Successes and encourage you to join us in continuing this conversation by participating. Click here to view or download the post.
