The Philadelphia Museum of Art and Commission on Arts and Literacies come together in this all-day workshop to explore with participants a wide variety of strategies for integrating the visual arts and literacy in elementary, secondary, university, and professional development settings. This workshop offers a unique opportunity for participants to tour the Museum galleries with the guidance of art educators at the PMA, and to explore with members of COAL their experiences in designing and implementing arts-infused curricula.
The morning gallery tours are interactive small group sessions that feature several of the vibrant range of programs designed by PMA staff for teachers and children. Topics include “Learning to Look,” (for elementary-age children) in which students learn to “see more” through activities and discussions about art and “The Artist and Society” (for secondary/college) in which students consider how artists have chronicled, commented upon, and criticized their societies.
Following lunch on-site, (a fee of $12.00 additional will be collected on site for lunch and incidentals) participants will choose from a variety of breakout sessions offered by COAL members and PMA staff. These sessions are designed to inspire further conversations and to share resources and strategies for promoting the arts and literacy.

L. Ramon Veal Research Roundtable - Sunday, November 22, 2009, 8:30 - 9:45 a.m. (Session L.52) - Philadelphia Convention Center, Room 202B
The L. Ramon Veal Research Roundtable serves as a writers’ workshop for researchers. Experienced researchers, graduate students, and teacher researchers are invited to submit drafts of papers, proposals, or research-in progress along with questions that serve to direct readers’ attention. Participants are grouped at tables (4-6 papers per table) with a senior scholar familiar with the table’s thematic topic. Participants receive copies of papers several weeks before the conference and come to the research roundtable prepared to discuss those papers at their table. Research roundtable participants give and receive feedback on submissions at any stage in the research process – from finding a focus to data analysis, from selecting participants to publishing. The research roundtable is characterized by friendly yet extremely professional interactions from participants offering a variety of perspectives. Submission deadline is November 6, 2009.
Please consider submitting and participating in this year’s Veal Roundtable! See the call for submissions for details.
