    external resource from National Endowment for the Humanities, The Political Theory of Hannah Arendt: NEH Summer Seminar - Applications Due March 1, 2017

    This Seminar offers stimulating dialogue for School Teachers (K-12) of all disciplines, including history, social studies, philosophy, literature, philosophy, and government. Given the varied responses to the recent election and the documented increase in incidents of hateful speech and other attacks on school campuses and in classrooms across the country, having a space to learn and practice how to engage difficult conversations on controversial subjects is needed now more than ever. Although the seminar emphasizes the analysis of history and political theory, it serves to foster community among school teachers and change-makers interested in practicing and encouraging critical thinking about contested political and ethical issues framed by what Hannah Arendt called “the human condition of plurality.” The seminar will take place over the course of four weeks at UC Davis, June 25 through July 21, 2017.

    external resource from Education Week Teacher, The Power of Visual Notetaking

    I have been a passionate advocate for visual notetaking in the classroom since I stumbled upon author and designer Mike Rohde’s book, The Sketchnote Handbook, about two years ago. As an elementary art specialist, I saw that, after incorporating the book’s techniques into my classroom, using simple images to synthesize content and demonstrate understanding came naturally to students. Kids learn to draw before they write, and pictures are how they make sense of the world.

    external resource from Artsy, Rocky Mountains, an Artist Residency Is Launching Careers

    Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, about 20 minutes from Aspen, sits a thriving, 50-year-old arts community. Anderson Ranch Arts Center was established in 1966 by the ceramist Paul Soldner, who sought to create an alternative to art school. With fellow artists Cherie Hiser, Peter Voulkos, and Sam Maloof, among others, Soldner created a place for artists to learn and refine their skills, to develop new work, and to relish the company of other creatives—a model that has flourished and evolved over the years as the community adapts to the demands of an ever-changing art world.
