Register Now for a June Summer Intensive
in San Francisco or Oakland!

One Size Does Not Fit All...
In a classroom of diverse learners, many students disengage. If you've ever wondered how to address the needs, from the highest to the lowest performing, join us for this 1-week intensive. Learn integrated strategies to educate students in order to create The World As It Could Be!

In collaboration with The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program, these hands-on courses explore arts integration for equitable classrooms and justice. Participants gain knowledge and tools to integrate the visual and performing arts and human rights education so their students actively engage in ways that promote a healthy, peaceful and just society.

Don't miss this opportunity
to rejuvenate your own teaching practice!
