Chasing Windmills: Building Imaginary Worlds 2018
The 10th Annual Habla Institute explored the concept of imagination in teaching and learning. We know that imagination is critical for students to be able to envision “positive social futures” and to be successful in a creative society. The design of the classroom space, the curriculum, lesson plans, centers—the entire educational experience at its very essence is an imaginative act. This year’s core text, Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, inspired us to imagine what might be possible in our classrooms.
Throughout the week participants created with multiple art forms, marrying text with visual art, music, movement, and theatre. The institute is always shaped around core texts, but all institute activities can be applied to any grade level and text, preschool through adults.
All participants had the opportunity to present and discuss their own work in a roundtable session that we call: The Power of a Room.
