Program to Incorporate Arts into Fifth Grade Curriculum Starts at Marywood
Marywood University and the Scranton School District have partnered in the Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program. This partnership, Pennsylvania 2010, is specifically designed to present professional development workshops to Scranton School District teachers in an effort to help them incorporate the arts (music, theater, dance, and visual arts) into other core subject areas, such as math, language arts, science, and history. Randy Barron, Kennedy Center teaching artist, presented a workshop at Marywood University that taught how to incorporate dance into the fifth grade science curriculum.
