Today, we welcomed our newest MAT cohort for the 2014-15 year! Students across all four disciplines attended sessions with faculty and staff at orientation this morning before heading to the Community Building workshop facilitated by Laura Snyder, Director of English Education, and guest speaker Steve Kidd. During the workshop, the new MAT students began to explore instructional methods using the ArtsLiteracy cycle. Some highlights included text- and movement-based activities, such as the exchange pictured above.
Throughout the day, MATs, mentor teachers and faculty have started gaining a better sense of how they will work together in the coming year. We look forward to sharing more news from the newest members of our MAT community!
